Aftermath of suicide bombing at Pakistan funeral

Dozens of people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a funeral procession near the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar.

Officials said the funeral was for the wife of a pro-government ethnic Pashtun tribal elder in the Matani area.

Footage from Pakistani television shows emergency workers arriving at the scene of the blast.

The BBC's Orla Guerin said the suicide bomber concealed his bombing device by wearing a shawl.
