Pakistan: Bombs hit music, barber shops; none hurt

Two bombs targeting barber shops and a music store exploded in northwestern Pakistan, where Islamic insurgents have issued threats against shaving beards and selling music, a security official said Sunday. One bomb exploded late Saturday while the other went off before dawn on Sunday in Inayat Kalay, a market town in Bajur tribal region, said Muwaz Khan, a government security official in the region. A shop selling music cassettes and CDs and two barber shops were damaged in the explosions but there were no casualties because the shops were closed and no one was inside, Khan said.
