BBC NEWS | South Asia | Carnage as car bomb hits Peshawar.

Riffatullah Orazkai, BBC Urdu
The scenes inside the emergency ward of Lady Reading were both horrific and heart-rending.

So great were the number of casualties that there was a shortage of beds, with many people being treated on the floor.

One unattended four-year-old boy’s condition appeared to be particularly distressing. His head and legs were covered with deep wounds.
