At least 15 people have been killed and dozens injured in an explosion in a crowded market in northwestern Pakistan on Friday, officials and local media reported.
The blast hit a busy market in the far flung town of Parachinar near the Afghan border and injured over 50 people, according to local administration official Ikramullah Khan.
Authorities fear a rise in the death toll as several injured are said to be in a critical condition.
Parachinar, located 137 kilometers west of Peshawar, is the only Shia-dominated tribal area in Pakistan and has regularly been the target of terrorist attacks.
