PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani media are reporting that two blasts occurred in a busy market in the northern city of Peshawar and that at least 20 people were injured.

The explosions Thursday came a day after a suicide attack on police and intelligence agency offices in the eastern city of Lahore killed about 30 people and wounded more than 300 others.

Details were sketchy but the Dawn television network showed video of people carrying a bleeding man from a shop after the blasts and firefighters hosing down a burning building.

Dawn says at least 20 people were wounded. It says the blasts occurred at the Qissa Khawani market in the early evening.
