Text size Aa Aa

At least six people have died in a bomb attack at a Sufi shrine in eastern Pakistan.  Around a dozen have been injured.
 
Police say the device was carried by two men on a motorbike to the gates of the shrine in the city of Pak Pattan.
 
It is not yet known who was behind the attack but Taliban militants abhor the Sufi strand of Islam and have attacked other shrines.
 
Pakistan’s US-backed government is fighting an ongoing battle against a Taliban insurgency.
