Milk churn blast at Pakistan shrine

Six people have been killed in a bomb outside a famous Sufi shrine in Pakistan's Punjab province.

Two men left the device in a milk churn on a motorbike near the gate of the shrine of Baba Farid, a 12th century Sufi saint, in Pakpattan.

The bomb exploded minutes later killing at least one woman and leaving 15 other people wounded, some critically.

The BBC's Aleem Maqbool said there had been three major attacks on shrines in the last few months.
