    Rawalpindi houses the headquarters of Pakistan's army and the residence of Parvez Musharraf, the president.

    The blasts came as Pakistan was engaged in a military operation against the Taliban in its northwest tribal regions.

    A month earlier, a car bomb killed at least six people near the Danish embassy in Islamabad.
