At least 38 persons were killed and 121 injured in twin explosions in Pakistan's Parachinar in Kurram Agency on Friday, according to AP reports.

Earlier in the day, at least five people were killed in a blast in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, capital of the country's Baluchistan province, a police official told Reuters.

"The blast took place near the IG office (inspector general of police) and it's possible the assailants were trying to enter the (army) cantonment which is close by," said provincial government spokesman Anwar ul-Haq Kakar.
