Pakistan has accused India's intelligence agency of being involved in two suicide blasts that jolted the country on Friday. According to reports, the death toll due to the blasts rose to 65. Pakistan hurled the accusations against India on Saturday, a day after the explosions rocked two regions of the country.

Hours later, another explosion took place at a mosque in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Hangu city that killed at least 5 people.
