LAHORE -- A blast at a market in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore killed at least one person on Thursday and wounded eight, a rescue official told Reuters.

Initial reports on Pakistani television channel Geo News said a generator had exploded but reports at the scene speculated that a bomb had gone off, based on the extent of the damage.

Pakistan has been struck by a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks, killing at least 130 people across the country and leaving hundreds wounded.
