At least 25 people are feared dead and more than 100 injured as two blasts hit a densely populated area in Parachinar in Kurram Agency on Friday, reported Dawn News.

The explosions were reported to have occurred near Tal Adda, where a busy market and bus terminal are located. People travelling out of the city ahead of Eidul Fitr are feared to have been directly affected by the twin bombings.

Rescue operations are currently underway, DawnNews reported. Security forces have cordoned off the affected site and are conducting a search operation.

The powerful blast took place near Inspector General of Police Ehsan Mehboob's office on Gulistan Road area of the provincial capital, Quetta.
