Pakistani army 'target of attack'

Officials say army and police were the target of multiple bombings.

    Small bombs continued to explode around the Pakistani city of Lahore hours after twin suicide attacks left at least 45 people dead, and more than 100 others injured.

    Army vehicles were the target of the fourth major attack in Pakistan this week.

    According to local officials Pakistans's police and army were the target of the attack, but it was mostly civilians who were killed, including women and children.

    No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the finger of blame is being pointed at the Pakistani Taliban.
