The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the simultaneous terror attacks on three security establishments in Lahore on Thursday.

The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for the multiple attacks in Lahore, The News International reported.

Militants dressed in uniform stormed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the Manawan police training school, close to the India-Pakistan border, and the training centre of the Elite Force.

There was heavy exchange of fire in all three buildings that came under siege. Loud blasts and gunshots could be heard, eyewitnesses said.

Commissioner of Police, Lahore, Khusro Pervez, told Dawn News that it was a "multi-directional attack".
