    "Luckily there was no serious damage," Pervaiz Rathore, the police chief of Pakistan's second-largest city, said.

    Kamal Hyder, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Pakistan, said the explosives were planted in a nearby drainage channel .

    "The explosions were meant to send a message rather than wreak havoc," our correspondent reported.

    "[But] there is a big question mark remaining as to who could have planted the bombs."
