Massive hunt in Lahore after blasts

Pakistani city on edge as hunt continues for suspects in last week's bombings.



    Residents in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore remain uneasy a week after twin suicide bombings rocked the area. 

    Authorities have increased security across the city and the hunt is continuing for those who carried out the attacks. There has been no claim of responsibility so far.

    But the government has blamed the Taliban, which has threatened to unleash thousands of suicide bombers if the army fails to halt a crackdown against the group.

    As Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports, residents of Lahore say their city is paying the price for the ongoing clampdown on the Taliban.
