An explosion near a roadside bazaar in the Mohmand tribal region of northwest Pakistan killed at least three people on Saturday, a witness said.

A local government official said the blast occurred as a car approached from the direction of Bajaur, a neighbouring tribal area where a suspected U.S. drone aircraft attack killed 18 people including foreign militants earlier this month.

Both Bajaur and Mohmand border Afghanistan.
