70 people are dead and many others wounded in an attack on a minority religious group’s prayer services in Lahore, Pakistan.The Tehrik-e-Taliban, or Pakistani Taliban, are believed to be behind the attack after they phoned into a local TV station claiming responsibility.
The attacks were conducted in a similar fashion to the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India in 2008, with assailants on foot armed with guns and grenades.
That plot was also linked to another terrorist organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammed, which has previously conducted attacks inside Pakistan and India.
