The Davis Cup tie between Pakistan and the Philippines scheduled for Lahore in July could be moved because of security concerns.

A spokesperson for the International Tennis Federation says they're considering switching the tie to the Philippines or a neutral venue, although it could still stay in Pakistan.

Last week, gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka cricket team bus near the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore, killing seven Pakistanis and wounding six players and one coach.
