Seven people were killed when a suicide bomber attacked the entrance to a court in north-western Pakistan, a police official said.

Ali Jan Khan said 15 other people were injured in the blast in the town of Shabqadar on Monday. He said two police officers were among the dead.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion is likely to fall on the local Taliban branch, which has been waging a war against the state for more than a decade.
