At least four people have died after plunging to their deaths while trying to escape a burning government building in eastern Pakistan.

A horrified crowd stood outside the 13 storey Lahore Development Authority building as scores of firefighters battled the flames.

The rescue team’s efforts were reportedly hampered by parked cars blocking access to the building and by a lack of vital machinery to conduct the operation. Pakistani authorities have warned that the death toll may rise.
