Police in Afghanistan say a suicide bomber has killed at least 20 people and wounded 50 more in the northern city of Taliqan.

The provincial governor Abdul Jabar Taqwa said the bomber struck at a funeral procession.

An MP, Abdul Mutalib, was reported to be among the dead.

The governor said he had been invited to the ceremony but did not go.

He said either he or the MP, Mutalib, might have been the bomber’s target.
