At least 10 people have been killed and 40 others wounded after a suspected bombing at a funeral in northwestern Pakistan, police said.
The blast on Friday targeted mourners in the town of Dera Ismail Khan who had gathered at the funeral of a local Shia Muslim.
The attack sparked an outbreak of shooting around the hospital where the dead and wounded were taken, and police fired tear gas in an attempt to restore order, according to journalists at the scene.
Several shops and vehicles near the blast site were also burned by a mob, Saadullah Marwat, a police officer, said.
He said it was not clear if the blast had been caused a hidden explosive device, a grenade or a suicide bomber.
Tauqir Zaidi, one of the mourners, told the Reuters agency: "One of our men was martyred yesterday and one today. We were taking the coffin to the graveyard, reciting mourning hymns, when suddenly this blast happened."
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but there have been previous outbreaks of sectarian violence between Sunni and Shia Muslims in Dera Ismail Khan, part of North West Frontier province bordering the South Waziristan tribal region.
Shias account for about 20 per cent of Pakistan's 160 million-strong population.
