Pakistan has detained more than 200 people and questioned thousands more as authorities hunt down those behind the Easter Sunday bombing in Lahore which killed 73 people, including children, the Punjab provincial law minister said Tuesday.

“More than 5,000 people were searched and interrogated and most of them were allowed to go, but some 216 have been apprehended for further investigations,” Rana Sanaullah told reporters in Lahore, adding that operations were being carried out in all districts of the province.
