A Pakistani official says the death toll from twin bombings at a crowded market at northwestern town of Parachinar has risen to 67, bringing the overall death toll from three separate attacks to 85.

Shahid Khan, a government official in Parachinar, said Saturday that many of the victims of the Friday attacks are in critical condition and feared death toll may further increases.

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a sectarian Sunni extremist group, claimed the bombings in Parachinar, a majority-Shiite town.

A suicide car bombing near the office of the provincial police chief in the southwestern city of Quetta has killed 14 people. The Quetta attack claimed by a breakaway Taliban faction and the Islamic State group. Four police officers were gunned down in southern city of Karachi.
