ISLAMABAD — A bombing ripped through a funeral Sunday in Pakistan’s northwestern region, killing at least 10 people and injuring more than two dozen, officials and rescue workers said.

The explosion occurred in Badber on the outskirts of Peshawar, the capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, when hundreds of people were gathered for the funeral of the wife of a member of an anti-Taliban militia.

Mian Iftikhar Hussain, the information minister of the provincial government, said 10 people had died while 28 were injured.

Mujahid Khan, a spokesman for private Edhi Emergency Service, said his workers had moved 11 dead bodies and 35 injured to hospital.

It was not initially clear whether the bombing was a suicide attack.
