Pakistan arrests hospital attack suspects
Pakistani police have said they are holding a number of people in connection with Friday's grenade attack at a Christian hospital in the northern town of Taxila, near Islamabad.

The authorities have given no further details, but say they suspect a breakaway group from the banned Islamic militant organisation, Lashkar-e Jangvi, was behind the incident in which four nurses died.

The attack followed the killing of six people at a Christian school earlier in the week.
