Bomb blast kills 3 people in eastern Pakistan – police

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) – A bomb blast ripped through a crowded market in eastern Pakistan on Thursday, killing three people and wounding over 20, police said.

“It was a bomb blast,” a police spokesman Arif Rana told Reuters, saying a time device rigged to a motorcycle exploded outside a shop in the market.

A nine year old boy is among the three dead, he said.

A separatist group based in southwestern Balochistan province claimed responsibility in a text message sent to a Reuters reporter.
