A female suicide bomber has killed at least 43 people in an attack on a large crowd receiving aid in north-west Pakistan, officials say.
The blast took place in the town of Khar in the Bajaur region, in tribal areas close to the Afghan border—a Taliban and al-Qaeda stronghold.
People displaced by fighting had been getting food at a distribution centre.
