At least 44 people have been killed in an explosion in Pakistan during a rally organised by an Islamist party.

More than 100 people were also injured in the explosion in north-west Bajaur district, where Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl was holding a meeting.

Police say they have found evidence suggesting the explosion was a possible suicide attack.

Officers say a rescue operation has been completed and all injured have been taken to hospital, warning that the death toll may rise further, as 15 people are in a critical condition.

The motivation behind the attack is not yet clear.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and an investigation into the explosion is taking place.
