Five people have been killed and several others wounded in an explosion in Lakki Marwat district of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The blast took place in a vehicle in Kot Kashmir area on Thursday.

Police force and rescue teams arrived at the site in a short spin of time and shifted victims to the nearby hospitals for treatment.

District Police Officer (DPO) Ali Akbar said victims of the incident had come to Lakki Marwat from North Waziristan.

He added that the bomb might have been attached to the vehicle but the incident is under further investigation.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the explosion which came days after a suicide bomber of TTP’s splinter group of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar killed at least 72 people and wounded more than 300 in Lahore.
