In Pakistan, at least 15 people have been killed and dozens more hurt by a large bomb attack in north-western Peshawar.
A number of children and women are said to be among the victims. Several shops and vehicles were also damaged in the explosion. No group has yet admitted responsibility.
It coincides with a visit to the country by Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron for talks on Afghanistan with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Islamabad could play a major role in any peace process as its security forces backed the Taliban’s rise to power in Afghanistan in the 1990s and continue to serve as gatekeepers to insurgent commanders living on its territory.
