Another police officer, Mohammad Shafqat, says the second bomb exploded outside another market about 3 miles away, breaking windows but wounding no one.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, but authorities have blamed the Pakistani Taliban for similar attacks across the country.

The latest attacks come days after Pakistani warplanes pounded militant hideouts in the North Waziristan tribal region bordering Afghanistan, killing 60. The military said those killed were militants. Locals said civilians also died.
