Lahore bomb blast 'kills six'

At least six people have been killed in a bomb attack in the Pakistani city of Lahore, officials say.

The blast ripped through a shopping area, wounding another 30 people.

Pakistan has been hit by a wave of bombings claimed by Islamist militant groups in recent days. There was no immediate claim for the latest attack.

Police now say 90 people were killed in an attack at a shrine in the town of Sehwan last week which was claimed by the so-called Islamic State (IS).

In response, Pakistan launched a security crackdown - which included closing border crossings with Afghanistan - and claims it killed 100 militants.
