In the evening on March 27 a suicide bomber committed a terrorist attack in the children’s section of Lahore amusement park. More than 70 people were killed in the blast, and more than 300 were injured.

At the time of the explosion there were a lot of families with children in the park, while the guards on stationary and mobile posts were virtually absent. An unprecedented number of visitors was due to the Christians of Pakistan celebrating the Catholic Easter. The explosion occurred a few meters away from children’s slides.

The responsibility for the attack was taken by the extremist group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, acting under the auspices of the Pakistani Taliban movement Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan.
