Deadly 48 hours in Pakistan

A day after a bombing in Lahore that killed as many as 30 people, militants seem to be making good on their threat to continue the violence.

According to one of several news reports, two bombs were detonated in a busy market in the northwestern city of Peshawar on Thursday, while militants attacked two police checkpoints in Dera Ismail Khan, also in the north.
