Death toll in Parachinar and Quetta attacks passes 80
The number of people killed in twin bombings in the northwestern Pakistani city of Parachinar has risen to at least 67, bringing the overall death toll from three separate attacks across the country on Friday to 85, officials said.
Shahid Khan, a local government official, said the toll could rise as many of the victims remained in critical condition on Saturday.
More than 200 people were wounded in the rush-hour attacks on Parachinar’s Toori Bazar, he told local media.
