TOKYO: A fire broke out at the Pakistani Embassy in Tokyo on Thursday (today).
According to sources, several fire brigade vehicles have been reached to extinguish the blaze.
However, no casualties have been reported in the incident so far. All staff were safely evacuated.
The fire broke out on the second floor of the embassy due to a short circuit.
The embassy is located in Tokyo’s Azabu district, which houses the diplomatic missions of many countries.
In October last year, Pakistan’s embassy in Kabul expressed its deep grief and sadness over the loss of life during a stampede that occurred, killing at least 15 Afghan nationals and injuring several others.
