A triple grenade attack on a cinema showing pornography in northwest Pakistan killed 13 people on Tuesday as government and Taliban negotiators met for a second round of peace talks.It was the second such attack within two weeks on a cinema in the city of Peshawar, which has been on the front line of Pakistan's homegrown Islamist insurgency. The attack came as negotiators representing the Pakistani government and Taliban militants met for a second time as part of efforts to end the bloody seven-year rebellion. Peshawar city police chief Mohammad Ijaz Ahmed said three grenades were used in the attack and up to 80 people were in the Shama cinema at the time.The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) umbrella group denied responsibility for Tuesday's attack -- as they denied the earlier one -- but it will nevertheless fuel scepticism about the talks' chances of success.
