A bomb blast at a market in a Pakistani town bordering Afghanistan on Monday killed at least five people and injured 10 others, police said.

According to the police, unidentified miscreants had planted an improvised explosive device in a motorbike that was parked on the roadside. .

Security forces and police cordoned off the area, where residents said several shops and vehicles were damaged.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but ethnic Balochi separatists demanding greater autonomy have been waging a rebellion for years while the province is also riven by sectarian strife and violence by armed groups.
