Text size Aa Aa

Police in Pakistan say at least 88 people were killed by a suicide car bomber who targeted a volleyball match. A vehicle packed with explosives blew up at the game, being watched by around 200 people. And it is feared the number of victims will rise. Dozens were injured as buildings collapsed and many are trapped.

Women, children and members of a local anti-Taliban committee were among those caught up in the blast near the northwestern town of Lakki Marwat, in a region known for being a militant stronghold.

It is one of the most deadly blasts to hit Pakistan where a wave of attacks have killed nearly 3,000 people over the last two and a half years.
