Many dead in attack on top Pakistan militant Hanafi

At least 15 people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack on a suspected militant commander's compound in a north-west Pakistani tribal region, officials say.

Reports said the commander, Nabi Hanafi, had been fighting a branch of the Pakistani Taliban (TTP). Some reports say that he has been injured but other reports say he was not even in the compound at the time.

The Taliban have said they were behind the attack in the remote Spin Thal area of North Waziristan.
