A series of bomb blasts in Peshawar and Lahore have left scores dead. The first blast occurred in Peshawar near the session courts earlier in the day that killed 5 including a lawyer and two police officers. Later in the evening, two bomb blasts within 40 seconds hit a popular market in Lahore killing 10 and injuring another 60.
I have landed at the Islamabad airport at 7 pm today. The gruesome task of keeping the tally of the victims of senseless violence has already begun for me.
