Deaths in Pakistan suicide attack

Up to 70 people were killed on Friday in a suicide bomb attack on a volleyball game in northwest Pakistan, a local police chief said.

The station, Express 24/7, said 65 people were wounded and more than 20 houses destroyed.

They said the bomber struck as young men played volleyball in front of a crowd of spectators, including elderly residents and children, near the town of Lakki Marwat.

Local police chief Ayub Khan said the bomber blew himself up in an SUV in the middle of the field and there was believed to be a second vehicle which fled the scene.

"One was blown up here while the second fled to an unknown location. We believe it may be used to attack some other place," he told Reuters by telephone.
