CCTV footage shows the moment a suicide bomber killed at least 25 people, many of them police, in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore on Monday (July 24), officials said, in an attack that shattered a period of relative calm in Pakistan's second-largest city.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack which wrought carnage near the Lahore Technology Park in the centre of the city.
A police official said the bomb had targeted policemen who had been deployed to clear street vendors from the area.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police Operations, Haider Ashraf, said initial findings suggested a suicide bomber had used a motorbike to carry out the attack.
