A suicide bomb in a crowded market outside a mosque in Pakistan's restive northwestern town of Hangu kills 19 mostly Sunni Muslims and wounds 45 on Friday.

Hangu, part of Pakistan's border region with Afghanistan, has been racked by sectarian violence between Sunni and Shi'ite tribes.

A senior police officer Imtiaz Shah said most of the dead had been coming out of the mosque after Friday prayers when the blast hit.
