At least 70 people - mostly women and children - have been killed at a crowded park in Pakistan in a suicide blast that also wounded more than 300 people, officials said.

A faction of the Pakistan Taliban, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, later claimed responsibility for the attack in the eastern city of Lahore and said that it was aimed at Christians.

The bodies of those killed continued to arrive at the city's hospital morgues early on Monday, where friends and family looked for and registered loved ones still missing.
