Several dead in Pakistan bombing

breaking news
A bomb blast has killed at least seven people at a market in the north-western Pakistani town of Dera Ismail Khan.

Many more people were wounded in the blast, reports said.
"It seems the bomb was planted. At the moment, we have at least seven dead and 50 wounded," government official Syed Mohsin Shah was quoted by Reuters.

In February, 25 people were killed in a bomb attack on a funeral procession in the town, near Pakistan's restive tribal belt.

The attack comes amid a government offensive against Taliban militants in Pakistan's north-western provinces.

Another bomb attack in January killed five people in the town.

Dera Ismail Khan has also been the scene of a number of deadly attacks targeted at the local Shia population since 2007.
