New twin attack in Lahore

Two explosions hit the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore on Friday, killing at least five people and wounding 25 others, police said. Initial reports indicate that one of the blasts went off near the busy RA Bazaar in a neighbourhood where the offices of several army and security agencies are located.

These attacks come just a few days after a suicide bomber killed 15 people in an attack against the offices of the Special Investigation Agency (SIA), an anti-terrorism wing of Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

In an earlier drive-by-shooting in the southern port city Karachi, three Muslim clerics were killed and one wounded in what police believes is a sectarian attack.
