PARACHINAR:(APS) January 21, 2017-At least 25 people were killed in a blast at the Sabzi Mandi (vegetable market) in Kurram Agency’s Parachinar area on Saturday morning, a district political administration official said.

“At least 25 people have been killed and 49 wounded,” Assistant Political Agent Shahid Ali told media.

Ikramullah Khan, a senior government official in Parachinar, said that the blast was caused by an improvised explosive device (IED) which was hidden in a vegetable box. The explosion was remote-controlled, a bomb disposal squad official said.

In a text message sent to journalists, the proscribed Lashkar-i-Jhangvi al-Alami claimed that it, along with Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) splinter Shehryar Mehsud group carried out the attack. However, the Shehryar Mehsud group did not independently claim the bombing.

A statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the blast took place at 08:50am.

The injured were shifted to agency headquarters hospital.
