At least 12 people have been killed by a bomb blast at a refugee camp in north-western Pakistan, police said.

Another 20 people were also wounded in the explosion at the camp on the outskirts of the city of Peshawar, police spokesman Mohammad Zahid said.

He said hundreds of people were queueing to get food when the blast occurred. It appears the explosives were hidden in a car.
