At least 22 people were reported dead and 70 wounded as a result of an explosion in the Parachinar in Kurram Agency northwestern district of Pakistan, Reuters reported citing Ikramullah Khan, a local political agent.
According to local media, the injured were transferred to a hospital. The area is reportedly cordoned off by the police forces.
The Kurram Agency district is a remote tribal area south of Peshawar.
Only a few months ago on January 21, some 25 people were killed and more than 65 injured when a blast occurred at a marketplace in Parachinar.
In February over 80 people were killed and 100 injured in a suicide bomb blast inside a Sufi shrine in Pakistan's southern city of Sehwan.
