At least two people have been killed in a bomb blast in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

Rescuers say another 25 were wounded and taken to hospital after the blast at the main railway station in the east of the city.

TV pictures showed a waiting room at the station which bore the brunt of the blast, its floor strewn with broken glass and upended furniture.

Lahore has seen many bombings in the past, but this is the first for months.

It is not clear who carried out the attack, which police say was an act of terrorism.

The bomb went off five minutes after the arrival of an express train in the station.

According to Bomb disposal officials, about 5kg of explosive material had been used in the bomb, which was planted in a bag at the waiting room.
