Suicide bombing in Lahore kills at least four, Pakistan Taliban claims attack

At least four people have been killed in a suicide bombing which appeared to have been an attack targeting a census team in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore Wednesday, officials said.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on army personnel. Muhammad Khurassani, a spokesperson for Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a banned Islamist movement often called the Pakistani Taliban, issued a statement claiming responsibility.
Security officials had cordoned off the area on Bedian Road in the bustling capital of Punjab province after the blast, which rescue officials said occurred just before 8:00 am local time.
This is the second attack in Lahore in less than two months. At least ten people were killed when a blast ripped through an upmarket area of Lahore in February.
