Suicide Bombing Kills Six, Wounds 22 in Pakistan's Lahore

Four of those killed at around 7:15 a.m. (02:15 GMT) were soldiers who, according to the Geo TV broadcaster, were accompanying a group of volunteers carrying out a nationwide census.

Security services reportedly say the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber who was moving either by foot or on a motorcycle. No group has claimed responsibility for the terrorist act yet, Sputnik reported. 

This is the second attack in Lahore in less than two months. At least ten people were killed when a blast ripped through an upmarket area of Lahore in February.

A car bomb tore through a market in a mainly Shiite area of Pakistan’s Parachinar last week, killing 22 and injuring 57. The attack was claimed by the Taliban.
