Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA), a faction of the umbrella Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, or Pakistani Taliban, swiftly claimed the attack in a message sent to AFP.
The group was also part of the wave of terror attacks which shook the country in February, claiming responsibility for a suicide #bomb in Lahore which killed 14 people.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned Friday’s blast, saying it was a “duty” to seek the “complete annihilation” of #terrorism in Pakistan, and ordering assistance for local authorities.
