Death toll in Pakistan bombing climbs past 70

“The death toll in a devastating suicide attack on picnicking families in the city of Lahore rose to 72, with another 230 injured, local media reports said Monday, as Pakistani authorities vowed to hunt down the Islamist militant bombers who claimed they specifically targeted Christians on Easter Sunday,” reported Annie Gowen, Shariq Hussain and Erin Cunningham in the Washington Post.

Several suspects have been arrested in five separate raids, and a large amount of weapons have been found.
