15 Killed in Pakistan Funeral Blast
A suicide bomber blew himself up at a funeral attended by an anti-Taliban politician in northwest Pakistan Sunday, killing at least 15 mourners and wounding more than 30 others.
Police say the politician, Khushdil Khan, escaped unharmed in the blast on the outskirts of Peshawar, the capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
A Pakistani Taliban faction claimed responsibility for the Sunday bombing.
Khan is a member of the secular-leaning Awami National Party, and has launched a campaign against the militant groups in the region.
