At least 69 killed, over 300 injured at public park in Pakistan's east Lahore
At least 69 people have been killed and over 300 others injured when a suicide bomber hit a public park in Pakistan's east Lahore city. 23 of those killed were children.
A Pakistani Taliban faction claimed responsibility, and said that they targeted Christians. Sunday's explosion occurred in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park close to children's swings. The park is a popular site for members of Lahore's Christian community. Many went to the park to celebrate the Easter weekend holiday.
Many Christians accuse the government of doing little to protect them, saying politicians are slow to take any concrete steps to improve security.
