Two people have been killed in a blast at a public meeting organised by the ruling ANP party in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province, police say.

The bomb was planted on a motorcycle at the venue in the town of Nowshera and police say it was remotely detonated.

It exploded minutes after KP Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti left the meeting.

Police say that 24 people were also injured in the blast, including nine policemen.

Nowshera district has been the scene of several suicide attacks in recent months, the BBC's M Ilyas Khan reports from Islamabad.

The district is home to a major army garrison and an air force academy.
