Pakistani Taliban militants are suspected of carrying out bombings at two mosques in north-west Pakistan

Bombings at two mosques in north-west Pakistan have killed at least 10 people, police say.

The blasts in a village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province also wounded more than 30 people.

The roof of one mosque collapsed following the explosion. The other mosque was also badly damaged. Rescue workers are trying to retrieve bodies from the rubble.

No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts, but suspicion is likely to fall on the Pakistani Taliban.
