Peshawar attacks increase fears

Deadly car bomb targets police checkpoint in Pakistan's northwest.

    Residents of the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar are becoming increasingly frightened as car bomb attacks continue to plague their hometown.

    At least 11 people were killed in the latest attack on Saturday, which happened within 24 hours of a similar one.

    The attacks appear to be aimed at weakening the government's military operation against Taliban groups.
