At least 15 people were killed Monday and 60 others wounded when twin bomb blasts ripped through a busy market in Lahore, officials said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but cultural hub Lahore has frequently been targeted by Taliban militants waging a two-and-a-half year insurgency that has killed more than 2,600 people in Pakistan. "It was bomb attacks, near simultaneous, but it is not clear if it was a planted bomb or detonated in a vehicle," senior Lahore police official Mohammad Khalid told a foreign news agency. Rana Sanaullah, provincial law minister of Punjab, said early reports suggested both were remotely-detonated blasts "of high intensity". "Ten people have been killed and more than 40 were injured. There are some women among the dead," he told a foreign news agency. Another city police official, Shafiq Ahmad, confirmed two explosions, and said they set shops and buildings ablaze at the popular Moon Market. "There were two blasts with an interval of about 30 seconds. One was in front of a bank and one was in front of a police station," he said.
