Many dead in Peshawar explosion

More than 91 people have died and dozens more hurt by a large blast in a market in Peshawar, Pakistan.

More than 200 people have been killed by such attacks in recent weeks as the army carries out an operation against Taliban militants in South Waziristan.

The blast comes as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton begins a visit to the Pakistani capital, Islamabad.

Kim Ghattas reports.
