Pakistan: Nowshera court bomb 'kills two'

Two people, including a policewoman, have been killed in a bomb explosion outside a district court in north-western Pakistan, police said.

Eight people were also wounded in the blast, which officials say was caused by an improvised explosive device triggered remotely.

The bomb was planted at a court gate in Nowshera district.

No group has said it carried out the attack.

Police have said they suspect the district court was the target of the attack.

Taliban militants have killed hundreds people in bombings and other attacks in recent years.
