Six Killed in Suicide Bomb Attack on Lahore Police Headquarters

2/17/2015 5:39:57 PM

Lahore: At least six people were killed in a Taliban suicide bomb attack on police headquarters here today. The militant organization claimed it as a revenge bid for the recent hangings of colleagues.

This is the third attack in a series of high-profile terror assaults in the last month triggered by a government decision in December to begin hanging those convicted of terror attacks, reversing an informal six-year moratorium on the death penalty.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for powerful Taliban splinter group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar took the responsibility of attack, “We claim the attack in Lahore because the government is killing our men in prison.”

"We will get revenge for every man and our struggle will continue until sharia is instituted in the country," he said, referring to Islamic law.
