At least 16 people have been killed and 75 wounded in a bomb blast at a market in Peshawar, northwest Pakistan, say police.

The explosion occurred near a Shi’ite assembly hall in a congested part of the city.

One building had collapsed in flames, while half a dozen others are badly damaged and on fire.

“It was a bomb. The number of casualties is very high. People are still trapped under the rubble,” senior police official Kashif Alam said.

Another senior police officer in the neighbourhood, Mohammad Gul, said at least 16 people had been killed.

Witnesses said the blast appeared to have been caused by a car bomb.

It knocked out power supplies in the street and rescue workers were hampered by a throng of angry and wailing people.
