Karzai denounces Parachinar bombings
At least 57 people were killed and nearly 170 others injured as a result of the back-to-back explosions, including one suicide bombing, Pakistani officials said.
In a statement from his office, Karzai condemned the deadly assaults targetting fasting Muslims as an anti-Islam act that could not be justified in any way.
The first bomb attached to a motorbike went off in the Main Parachinar Bazaar, with a second device exploding on the main road in the area. The bombs went off when people were buying Iftar items.
According to the statement, the president extended his sincere condolences to the martyrs’ families and prayed for the swift recovery of the injured.
