A bomb attack killed 19 people and wounded more than 40 others outside neighbouring mosques as worshippers attended Friday prayers in northwest Pakistan, officials said.

Initial reports suggest the bomb could have been planted on a motorcycle in a narrow lane containing the Shiite and the Sunni Muslim mosques in the town of Hangu, which has been a flashpoint for sectarian violence.
