A suicide blast killed at least 15 people in a tribal area in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, authorities said.
The blast injured 22 others in Darra Adam khel, near Peshawar, said Nasir Khan, a local government official.
Initial investigations indicate the bomb was targeting a base for anti-Taliban fighters, according to officials.
“The building targeted was the resistance fighters’ office base,” said Ghulam Farooq, another local official.
The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan operates in the area, according to Farooq.
