Local security officials confirmed the attack and casualties.

Pakistani militant umbrella group Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) claimed responsibility for the explosion.

“Our mission is to eliminate the black infidel democratic system in Pakistan and impose Islamic justice system. We will trample every hurdle in the way of our mission,” spokesman Mohammad Khurasani said in a message sent to reporters.

Violence in Pakistan has declined in recent years following a series of military offensives against insurgents along the northwestern border.

But militant groups are still able to carry out bloody attacks, particularly in the northwest.
