Blast hits Pakistan market, killing at least 14 people.
Local officials said a bomb hit a small market known for its weapons sales in a town bordering Pakistan's mostly lawless northwestern province today, leaving at least 14 people dead, reported BBC News.
Security officials told BBC they believed attack was on government-allied militia that had been set up in the town of Darra Adam Khel to fight Taliban influence. Reuters said the area has been roped off and an investigation is under way.

The border town lies south of Peshawar, where some 20 people injured at the blast were moved for medical care, according to Reuters, but is even closer to the largely militant-held Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
It was not immediately clear what exactly triggered the blast, with BBC reporting it as a car bomb attack, Reuters a suicide bombing, and Pakistan's Express News saying the blast was caused by an explosives-strapped stuck.
