Pakistan braced for Taliban raids

Pakistan’s security officials gave warning last night of further attacks planned by the Taliban in the country’s populous Punjab province, following a car bomb attack earlier in the day on the offices of the inter-services intelligence counter-espionage agency in the eastern city of Multan. At least nine people were killed, including two militants, and scores were wounded.

On Monday, the Punjabi capital Lahore was rocked by two bomb blasts in a crowded market that left at least 30 people dead. Farhan Bokhari, Islamabad
