Pakistan resumes 'peace games'

Government holds biennial games in Peshawar after last year's cancellation over security concerns.

    Pakistan's national games held since the founding of the nation are back on, after a gap of two years as a result of security concerns.

    It is taking place in the violence-ridden northwestern city of Peshawar, the scene of a series of attacks that left hundreds dead in the past one year.

    More than 3,000 athletes from across the country will take part in the six-day event with the message that Pakistanis want peace and brotherhood.
