At least 16 people have been killed and another 17 wounded by a bomb at a marketplace in Kalaya, in the Orakzai tribal region of Pakistan.

The blast went off close to a number of government buildings. Orakzai is an area where the Taliban is active.

A government spokesman told the BBC that most of the dead were leaving a mosque in the main square in Kalaya following Friday prayers.
