Pakistan’s Prime Minister is calling for greater co-ordination in the fight against terror.March 28, 2016
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif says the Pakistan’s resolve to deal with militants was growing.
He was speaking at a meeting of security officials, following Sunday’s deadly attack against Christians celebrating Easter in a park in Lahore.
The are was more crowded than usual, as members of Lahore’s minority Christian community had gathered to celebrate Easter at a funfair in the park.
Taliban splinter group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has claimed responsibility for the attack, which injured at least 3-hundred and killed 70 people, most of whom were Muslims.
At least one funeral, of 11-year-old Christian boy Sahil Pervez, was held on Monday.
The army says a number of arrests were made and weapons seized in five raids carried out by security forces.
The bombing of the amusement park in Lahore on Easter Sunday was the bloodiest on Christians in Pakistan since the 2013 Peshawar church bombing that killed more than 80 people.
