Bomb Kills Four, Wounds 20 In Pakistan

The blast occured near the residence of Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

A suspected suicide bombing near a police checkpoint killed five police and four bystanders and wounded 27 others on Wednesday near the city of Lahore in eastern Pakistan, police said.

He said the Rescue ambulances are shifting the injured to the Sharif medical complex and other nearby hospitals.

Around 25 people were also injured in the attack.

Jam Sajjad Hussain, spokesman of a state-run rescue service, told Reuters that his officials had taken seven dead bodies to hospitals.

According to the DIG (Operations), Dr Haider Ashraf, the explosion occurred near a police camp in Raiwind.

"It is not confirmed yet whether it was a suicide blast or planted device", he said, adding "police personnel" were the target of the blast. However, local media reported that a bomb fixed in a motorcycle exploded with a big bang soon after a police patrolling party reached the check post near a famous religious center.

Ashraf said numerous wounded were police and three were hospitalized in critical condition.

Nature of the blast is not known yet.

It was such a powerful blast that its sound was heard several kilometers from the site.

Defunct Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

Washington on Thursday offered a $5 million bounty for the Pakistani Taliban militant leader, Mulllah Fazlullah, a day after a suspected USA drone strike on a training camp in a remote part of Afghanistan killed his son and more than 20 other militants preparing to launch suicide attacks in Pakistan. At least 9 people including security officials were killed and a dozen wounded in the incident.
