KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai on Saturday vehemently denounced twin explosions in Pakistaninfo-icon's northwestern tribal region of Kurram near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border.

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.
