LAHORE - A bomb killed at least two people and injured at least 27 others when it exploded at the main railway station in the eastern city of Lahore in Pakistan's Punjab province on Tuesday, police officials and rescue workers said.

"The bomb was planted in a bag which was left near one of the counters at the station. We estimate there were 6-8 kg of explosives in the bag," Aslam Tareen, a senior city police official, said.

"We're trying to investigate how the bag managed to get through despite so many scanners," he said.

Five of the wounded are in a critical condition in hospital, a health official told Reuters.
