A suicide bomber linked to the Taliban has killed at least 65 people and wounded more than 200 others outside a park in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore.
The explosion took place in the parking area of Gulshan Iqbal Park, just a few feet away from some children’s swings.
The area was crowded at the time because Christians were gathering to celebrate the Easter holiday.
The Taliban faction Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has claimed responsibility, saying it was targeting Pakistan’s Christian minority.
