35 dead, 69 hurt in Khyber blast


A remote-controlled bomb blast killed 35 people and wounded more than 60 others on Tuesday in the deadliest attack in months in Jamrud, one of the towns of the troubled Khyber Agency.
The explosion took place in a market in Jamrud, which also used to serve as the main supply route for NATO forces operating in Afghanistan.
“The total number of deaths in the blast is 35 while 69 people were wounded, and of them the condition of 11 is critical,” a senior administration official, Shakeel Khan Umarzai, told AFP.
Another top official in Khyber, Mutahir Zeb, said the target of the attack was not immediately clear.
“According to initial information, it was a remote controlled device planted in a passenger pickup van,” he said.
