A truck packed with explosives blew up in a crowded market in northwestern Pakistan on Thursday, killing 11 people, as security concerns led officials to temporarily close a supply route to NATO troops in Afghanistan.
The blast in Salarzai town in the Bajur tribal area near the Afghan border also wounded several people, some of them critically, and damaged some vehicles and shops, said Jehangir Azam, a local government administrator.
It was unclear whether the attack was a suicide bombing or whether the explosives were detonated by remote control, he said.
