"At least 35 people were killed and over 100 others injured when twin bomb blasts ripped through a busy market here, the latest in a series of terror attacks that have rocked Pakistan after the killing of al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden near Islamabad. The second of two explosions in northwest Pakistan was carried out by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosive vest when a large number of people gathered after the first blast, police said on Sunday. The first explosion at Khyber Super Market in Peshawar late Saturday night was a low-intensity one caused by a timed device hidden in the bathroom of a hotel." (06/12/11)
