Storyline

Authorities in Pakistan have stepped up security across the nation after a suicide bombing in the southern Sindh province killed at least 80 people and wounded more than 200 others late Thursday.

In the capital Islamabad, local authorities have increased police presence across the city, with armed security personnel checking vehicles and passers-by on every major street.

Meanwhile, a state of emergency has been declared in Sindh, with many other cities having also upgraded their level of security.

The country's anti-terrorism agency has alerted authorities in cities including Islamabad and Rawalpindi about possible suicide attacks in the coming days, especially in public places such as malls, hospitals and schools.

The bombing at the centuries-old Lal Shahbaz Qalandar Shrine in the town of Sehwan - Pakistan's deadliest in years - took place at around 19:00 Thursday when a suicide bomber entered the shrine from the crowded golden gate and detonated among a group of people performing the Dhamal (Sufi dance) inside the compound.

The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
