At least 18 killed in bomb blast on Pakistan bus

At least 18 people have been killed in a bomb attack on a bus carrying government employees in north west Pakistan.

The vehicle is said to have been taking the workers to their offices when it was hit on the outskirts of the city of Peshawar.

Pictures from the area showed wreckage from the bus strewn across the road, with reports of at least 34 people being injured in the explosion.

Peshawar lies near Pakistan's lawless tribal belt - a stronghold of Taliban and al-Qaeda militants.
