LOWER DIR: A suicide bomber attacked a funeral of a member of a pro-government Pashtun tribe in a village in northwest Pakistan on Thursday, killing at least 31 people, police said.
More than 35 people were wounded in the attack in Lower Dir district near the Afghan border, where Taliban militants have carried out several attacks over recent years.
“It was a suicide attack and it happened when people were offering funeral prayers,” police official Saleem Marwat told Reuters.
Pakistani Taliban militants have stepped up attacks on pro-government tribes recently.
