Earlier in the day, in the city's market - another explosion - killing at least 11 people and injuring more than 40. Then - in a fourth blast - in Pakistan's northwest - at least 21 people were killed and more than 60 people injured as people gathered to hear a religious speaker in the city of Mingora.
