NOWSHERA: A blast hit the site where Awami National Party (ANP) was holding a public rally that killed five persons and injured 15 others, including four policemen, our sources reported Monday.

The bomb went off soon after chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Amir Haider Hoti, and other ministers in his provincial cabinet had left the meeting in the town of Nowshera.

According to police, a remote-controlled bomb that was fixed in a motorcycle hit the ANP rally venue after the public address concluded.
