More than 200 people have been detained in Pakistan in the hunt for those behind the Easter Sunday bombing that killed at least 72 people in Lahore.
Punjab’s law minister said those held were among more than 5,000 questioned in a sweeping counter-terror offensive.
Weapons and ammunition have also been seized in raids by security forces.
Taliban splinter group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar said it carried out the attack against Christians celebrating Easter, although most of those killed were Muslims.
At least 29 of the victims were children. Another 300 people were injured, with officials saying they expected the death toll to rise.
“There are no militant safe-havens or no-go areas in Punjab,” law minister Rana Sanaullah told a news conference in Lahore.
He said 56 intelligence operations had been jointly carried out by police, paramilitary, army and intelligence forces.
