Fatal bomb attacks hit Peshawar and Lahore

Two separate bomb attacks in Pakistan have killed more than forty people and left over 100 injured, police and medics say.

Ten people died when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a court-house in Peshawar and at least 36 were killed in Lahore, when two near-simultaneous blasts ripped through the city's busy Moon Market, several hours later.

More than 400 people have been killed during a string of attacks mounted by Islamist militants in recent weeks.

Aleem Maqbool reports.
