media People march through the streets of Lahore to condemn the multiple suicide … Reuters

At least 47 people died and 100 people were injured in a suicide bomb attack in north-west Pakistan on Friday. The bomb hit a crowd queueing for government wheelchairs in a market in Yakaghund town in Mohmand.

 Witnesses said a huge explosion damaged an administration office, shops, a local jail and other buildings in the small town not far from the border with Afghanistan.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Mohmand is a Taliban stronghold.

The government said all major parties would be invited to the conference. The details and date of the possible conference have not been made clear.
