2 Dead, 25 Killed as Explosions Rock Peshawar

Two explosions rocked a busy marketplace in Pakistan’s north western city of Peshawar on Thursday, initial reports say two people were killed and 25 others wounded in the strike that came a day after a macabre bomb and gun attack targeted a police building in a high security area in Lahore on Wednesday.

At least 30 people were killed and 300 others were wounded in the Lahore attack.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the Wednesday attack and warned residents of acts of violence across several Pakistani cities.

Peshawar – the best known city in Pakistan’s tribal dominated north western frontier – has emerged as the battle epicenter since Islamabad launched a military ofensive against the radical Taliban militants last month.
