Grenade Attack Kills 11 in Pakistani Cinema

Pakistani officials say at least 11 people were killed after assailants threw grenades into a crowded movie theater in the city of Peshawar.

At least 20 others were injured.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack -- the second of its kind in the area this month.

This latest attack comes amid peace talks between the government and the Pakistani Taliban aimed at ending a nearly decade long insurgency in Pakistan's northwest.
