A suicide bomber killed at least 65 people, mostly women and children, at a park in Lahore yesterday, in an attack claimed by a Pakistani Taliban faction which said it had targeted Christians.

More than 300 other people were wounded. The 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 of whom had gone there to celebrate the Easter weekend holiday.

The Taliban faction Jamaat-ul-Ahrar claimed responsibility for the attack.
