A bomb attached to the bottom of a bus hired to ferry government employees has killed at least 19 people in Peshawar in Pakistan.

It is the latest in a series of attacks since the Pakistani army moved into the region in strength to root out militant groups in 2007.

Police said about eight kilos of explosive was used, ripping the rear off the vehicle.
