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.

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 Iftarinfo-icon items.

According to the statement, the president extended his sincere condolences to the martyrs’ families and prayed for the swift recovery of the injured.
