Peshawar, Mar 31 (IBNS): A blast outside an imambargah at a market in Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province killed at least 22 people on Friday, media reports said.

“We have 22 dead bodies here at the hospital and 57 injured, including women and children,” said Moeen Begum, a surgeon at the hospital told Dawn News.
