Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams joined numerous members of the Pakistani community in New York City on March 28 in condemning the Easter Sunday bombing in a public park in Lahore. Assumed to be a suicide bombing, the attack left at least 70 dead and more than 300 injured.

A candlelight vigil in memory of the victims was held on the evening of March 28 at Makki Masjid Muslim Community Center at 1089 Coney Island Ave. in Brooklyn. Earlier in the day, Adams held a press briefing on the event.
