Taliban suicide blast targeting census team kills seven in PakistanSeven people were killed and up to 19 wounded in a Taliban suicide blast that targeted a census team in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore Wednesday, officials said. The attack, which the military confirmed was a suicide blast and was quickly claimed by the Pakistani Taliban, was the latest incident to dent growing confidence in security as Pakistan wages a years-long war on militancy. “I saw two dead bodies on the spot and others crying,” the student told AFP from hospital, where local officials were giving flowers to the wounded as a crowd gathered outside.
