At least 22 people have been killed in two bomb blasts in the Pakistani garrison town of Rawalpindi on Tuesday, adjoining the capital Islamabad.

The first blast at the Qasim market apparently targeted a bus carrying defence employees from the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission.

The blast destroyed the vehicle, which was carrying 15 to 25 men completely.

Shortly afterwards there was a second explosion in a commercial area, the RA Bazar near Army headquarters. The bomb was placed on a motorcycle.

Attacks by militants have increased since the army stormed the Red Mosque in Islamabad in July.
