    Two bomb blasts have struck a girls' college in Pakistan's Khyber Province just a day after the Pakistani Taliban killed 141 in an attack on a school in Peshawar.
    The explosions were reported at the Girls Degree College in the city of Dera Ismail Khan, in the same province as Peshawar where the Taliban school attack took place, according to Indian outlet NDTV. No injuries were reported in the blasts.
    Pakistani security forces rushed to the scene of the blasts and cordoned off the area.

    The town of Dera Ismail Khan is approximately 118 miles (304km) south of the city of Peshawar.
    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but suspicion will fall on the Pakistani Taliban after yesterday's attack on a military school in the city of Peshawar.
    In the Taliban's school massacre, at least 141 people, mostly children, were killed and 122 injured after seven militants - dressed as security forces - entered the building shooting at students and detonating at least one suicide bomb.

    Live Updates: Two Blasts Rock Girls' College in Dera Ismail Khan, Pakistan

    Reports have emerged Wednesday evening of two bomb explosions outside a girls' college in Dera Ismail Khan, another city in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. This comes just a day after a dastardly attack by Taliban on a school that left 142 people dead, mostly young school children.

    According to preliminary reports posted on social media, Pakistan TV channels are reporting two bomb blasts outside a degree college in Dera Ismail Khan, which is one of the 26 districts in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The capital of the district is the town of Dera Ismail Khan.

    Pakistani TV reports claimed that the police are on the scene and as of now no casualities have been reported.

    No injuries were reported in the blasts according to reports, however Pakistani media was seen giving the news much importance as it came a day after the deadly school attack.

    Pakistani security forces rushed to the scene of the blasts and cordoned off the area.

    The town of Dera Ismail Khan is located roughly 118 miles (304km) south of the city of Peshawar. As of now, no group has claimed responsibility but the suspecion is likely to fall on Taliban.

    There is nothing our media doesn't find interesting. Heck they covered a man in a black coat and woollen hat, astride a container for 3 months showing him coughing and sneezing from every conceivable angle.

    If it's happening in Pakistan, the Pakistan media will be covering it!

    Pakistan army will have to face the roughshod now after these back to back attacks.

    Time the moderate muslims of Pakistan raised their voice.

    Frankly yesterday when they were repeatedly showing kids who said "we will finish Taliban" on TV i felt as if media was putting a bullseye on each one of them.
