least 10 are dead and over 50 wounded after what authorities said was a massive blast that hit a protest in the Pakistani city of Lahore. It struck right outside the Provincial Assembly of Punjab. Something police believe points to an apparent suicide attack, a faction of the country's Taliban claiming responsibility.
But the protest wasn't directed at the government's ongoing struggle against insurgencies. Seen here before the attack, it was organized by Pakistan's pharmaceutical industry, reportedly demonstrating against changes to drug sale law. Security in Pakistan has vastly improved in recent years but Islamist militants such as the Taliban and Islamic State have still carried out large attacks.
Taliban claimed responsibility for an Easter Day attack last year that killed more than 70 in a public park. In a written statement, the Prime Minister says the country will rid itself of militants he called a cancer.
