• A daily summary of global reports on security issues.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bombings, which killed at least two people and wounded 20 more, reports the Associated Press. They follow a series of major assaults that may be in retaliation for Pakistan's push to conquer the Taliban and Al Qaeda stronghold, where it says it has already killed nearly 80 militants.
The bombers detonated their explosives nearly simultaneously in a women's cafeteria and the Islamic law department at the International Islamic University, which more than 12,000 students attend, reports the AP.
The Army said Tuesday it had surrounded Kotkai, the home of top Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud and Qari Hussein, a senior Taliban commander responsible for training suicide bombers, reports the BBC. (See a detailed map of the operation at the same link.)
