Officials in northwest Pakistan say a bomb blast has killed at least 9 people and wounded more than 40.

Authorities say the explosion Monday happened in the town of Jamrud in the Khyber tribal district.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Several militant groups, including the Pakistani Taliban, have carried out attacks in Khyber and other parts of the tribal region in the past.
