At least 15 people are dead after a blast in a market in Pakistan near the Afghanistan border. At least 20 more are wounded, reports the Daily Beast.

Some cars were damaged in the blast, which Reuters said occurred near the office of a senior government official. It is unclear if the official was the target.

No one has taken responsibility for the blast and it is unclear if it was caused by a suicide attacker or a planted bomb.
