At Least 20 Reported Killed At Pakistan Funeral


At least 20 people have been reported killed after a bomb exploded at a funeral ceremony in northwestern Pakistan.

At least 45 more were injured.

The blast took place on September 15 in the Lower Dir area, which is close to the Afghan border.

The bombing occurred at the funeral of a local tribal elder.

There has been no claim of responsibility.

Like much of northwestern Pakistan, Lower Dir regularly sees violence between Islamist militants and security forces.

The militants often target tribesmen siding with security forces.
