CCTV footage captures the moment a suicide bomber wreaks carnage on a busy street in Pakistan.
The attack in the city centre of Lahore has left at least 25 people dead, many of them police who'd been deployed in the area to clear street vendors.
Officials suspect the attacker rode in on a motorcycle, ramming it into a police checkpoint and destroying a number of vehicles.
Rescue workers quickly arrived at the scene to rush the wounded to hospital, as army troops swarmed in.
The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the explosion, which shattered a period of relative calm in the country's second biggest city.
Attacks like these are not uncommon, particularly in tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. But they've become less frequent in Lahore in recent years.
