The bomb went off soon after chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Amir Haider Hoti, and other ministers in his provincial cabinet had left the meeting in the town of Nowshera.

It was the third bomb in five days to hit the northwest, which in recent months had seen a decline in violence.

“The bomb was planted on a motorbike and the target was the meeting,” local police chief Mohammad Hussain said.

The Awami National Party, which leads the provincial government, had called the meeting, attended by its senior members.
