At least 27 people have been killed and 55 others wounded in a suicide bomb attack at a funeral in north-west Pakistan, officials say.

The dead included a provincial MP linked to Imran Khan's PTI party. It is unclear if he was the target.

The bomb blast in Shergarh town in Mardan district is the bloodiest since PM Nawaz Sharif took office.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack which took place during the funeral of a local businessman.
