Pakistan Mourns Bombing Victims

Families are burying their dead after a suicide bomber struck a crowded public park in Lahore, Pakistan, yesterday. More than 70 people were killed and hundreds more injured. A Pakistani Taliban group claimed responsibility, saying it targeted Christians celebrating Easter. Shazeb Jillani, the BBC correspondent in Lahore, tells Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson that many Muslims were also killed.
