Imran Khan on election campaign trail

Three bombs have exploded in north-west Pakistan killing at least eight people.

They are the latest in a series of attacks targeting politicians in the run-up to May's general election.

After five years of democratic rule the country is struggling with terrorist attacks, inflation, and crippling power cuts.

Now, the party led by the country's former cricket captain, Imran Khan, has been gaining ground and could change the political landscape.

Orla Guerin reports from Punjab.
