Rising attacks hamper Peshawar hospital work

One of Pakistan's oldest hospital struggles to cope with the rising number of victims of bomb attacks.

    The death toll from an attack on a church in the Pakistani city of Peshawar has passed 80.

    Many of those wounded were brought to the Lady Reading Hospital, which is one of Pakistan's oldest.

    But it is struggling to cope with the rising number of victims of bomb attacks and traffic accidents.
