Officials in northwestern Pakistan say a bomb has exploded in a busy market, killing at least five people.

The blast happened Thursday in Salarzai, an area of the Bajur tribal district near the Afghan border.

No group claimed immediate responsibility for the attack, which also wounded at least 11 people.

The Pakistani Taliban has a history of attacks in the area.
