A suspected suicide bomber has targeted a protest rally in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore, killing at least 11 people.

The blast occurred when owners of medical shops were demonstrating against amendments to a law governing drug sales in Punjab province.

Among those killed were senior police officers. Dozens of people were hurt.

Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a Pakistani Taliban splinter group, said it had carried out the attack. It said it was in response to Pakistani military operations.

Meanwhile, emergency officials say that 32 people were killed and 13 injured after their tour bus overturned on road near Taiwan's capital, Taipei.

Most of those on board were local elderly tourists returning from a cherry blossom tour in Taichung.

Taiwan is considered one of the safest places in the world - but critics say safety standards need to be improved.
