At least 26 people have been killed and 75 others wounded when twin explosions ripped through a crowded market in northwest Pakistan, according to officials.

Banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Sunni militant group linked with the Taliban took responsibility for the attack.

Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari vehemently condemned terrorists blasts in Quetta and Parachinar, claimed a number of lives and injuries to innocent people. A second official confirmed the explosions and toll.

Dr. Sabir Hussain, an official at a government-run hospital in Parachinar, said they had received 261 victims of the twin blasts, with 62 listed in critical condition.

At least 27 people have been killed and about 120 others wounded as two bombs went off in Parachinar, northern Pakistan.

Menendez Weighs in on 'Devastating' Senate Health Care Bill
Heller said that to win his vote, GOP leaders would have to "protect Medicaid expansion states" from the bill's current cuts. Whether these protests are enough to kill the bill, or are anything more than political theater, remains to be seen.

He said that steps should be taken to provide the injured with best medical treatments in hospitals.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif called for security to be beefed up across the country as he condemned the attack, saying that no Muslim could ever imagine committing such a "horrific" act.

There was no immediate claim for Friday's attack.

Separately in the evening, three militants riding on two motorbikes killed four policemen in a restaurant in Karachi.

Jamaat ur Ahrar, a splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack in a message sent to Reuters by its spokesman, Asad Mansur. The security forces cordon off the entire area and started search operation.

In January, 25 people were killed and 87 others when a bomb tore through a crowded vegetable market in the same city. Islamic State Khorasan Province, the Middle Eastern group's affiliate in Afghanistan and Pakistan, has been known to work with the myriad of Pakistani militant groups in previous attacks, including with JuA.

Baluchistan government spokesman Anwar ul Haq Kakar said the blast happened near the office of the inspector general of police when officers stopped the auto to search it near a checkpoint. TV footage showed several badly damaged cars and a road littered with broken glass.

Bajwa said that the enemy would "fail against resilience of Pakistan".
