Police in Pakistan say at least 10 people were killed after a bus exploded on a busy highway near the capital, Islamabad.

Officials say Tuesday's blast was caused by a faulty gas cylinder.

Several people were also injured in the explosion.

Pakistan has a large number of buses and other vehicles which use compressed natural gas, a cheaper alternative to gasoline and diesel fuel.
