    At least four Pakistani policemen and two civilians were killed when a suicide bomber on a motorcycle attacked a checkpoint on the outskirts of Lahore. 

    The blast occurred on Wednesday in Raiwind, a town near the eastern Pakistani city, and was claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) armed group. 

    More than a dozen other people were wounded in the explosion, which took place close to a police post set up near the grounds where a religious congregation was taking place. 

    “The police appear to be the target,” Deputy Inspector General Haider Ashraf told local media. 

    In a tweet, Punjab province’s government “strongly condemned” the attack. 

    Attacks – including suicide bombings – have frequently hit Lahore and its surrounding areas in recent years.
