Officials in Pakistan's northwest Kurram tribal region say a suicide bomber has attacked a market, killing at least seven people and wounding at least 45.

Authorities say the blast in Parachinar happened close to a mosque, near the time of Friday prayers.

Officials say the explosion destroyed several shops.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack in the town near the Afghan border.
