Up to 20 people killed in twin blasts in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - At least 15 people were killed when two blasts ripped through a market area in Pakistan's northwestern city of Peshawar late on Saturday, police said.

"Fifteen to 20 people have been killed. One of the blasts was quite big but I can't say about the nature of the blasts," Peshawar's senior police official Ejaz Khan told Reuters.
