A bomb blast has killed at least 23 people and wounded at least 26 others in northwest Pakistan.

The explosion happened near at a bus stop in Jamrud, a market town close to the border with Afghanistan.

Most of the victims were bus passengers.

Jamrud lies inside Pakistan’s Khyber tribal region.

No-one has as yet admitted to carrying out the attack, but the area is a stronghold of anti-government Islamist militants who have carried out similar bombings there in the past.
