A bomb blast near the northern city of Pakistan has killed at least seven people. Children of a wide age range are among the dead, according to BBC coverage of the case, but dozens more are injured.

The attack took place in the northern part of the country, in the city of Peshawar, and no group or organization has claimed responsibility for the attack.

There has been a lot of unrest in Peshawar in recent years, but the Taliban have a large number of votes there. Six years ago, gunmen stormed a military school in the city, killing 150 people, including many children.
