Deadly twin blasts in Pakistan's Islamabad university

Two bomb blasts tore through a university in Pakistan's capital Islamabad on Tuesday, with at least nine people reported injured as paramedics ferried casualties to hospitals, police said.

Police official Mohammad Afzal from the emergency response department said, "We have sent a team to the site. We are collecting information about casualties," the policeman said.

Pakistan's state PTV reported that nine people were wounded as private television channels broadcast footage of paramedics stretchering out two casualties with blood stains seeping through their clothes.

One young woman was shown on Geo television stepping out of an ambulance with blood splattered down the front of her tunic.

The International Islamic University was established in the 1980s. Its sprawling campus, on the outskirts of the city, has more than 12,000 students, nearly half of them women. Many of the students come from abroad.
