Four arrested over Lahore suicide attack

Security forces in Pakistan have arrested four people in connection with a suspected suicide bombing.

12 people lost their lives in the attack outside the Data Darbar Sufi Muslim shrine in Lahore on Wednesday 8 May. The blast has been claimed by the Hizbul Ahrar, a splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban.

Four suspects were picked up in a raid in the city’s Garhi Shahu area soon after agencies investigating the bombing traced the alleged suicide bomber to the locality.
