A Pakistani air force helicopter on Tuesday evacuated the Sri Lankan cricket team from Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium following a deadly ambush, an AFP reporter said.

Sixteen members of the team ran towards the military aircraft on the pitch under guard of security officials, said the correspondent.

The helicopter then took off.

The Pakistani authorities said they would provide helicopters to evacuate the Sri Lankan team from the cricket ground to an air base, from where they are scheduled to return home immediately.
