A bomb exploded outside a mosque in northwest Pakistan on Friday, killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens of others as worshippers poured out after the main weekly prayers, officials said.

The attack happened in the town of Hangu, which is close to Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal belt on the Afghan border where Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants have carved out strongholds.
