A suicide bomber blew himself up beside a crowded bus in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday, killing at least 14 people, officials said.

"A boy between the ages of 18 and 20, who was carrying about 6 kg (13 lbs) of explosives, carried out the attack," said Dilawar Bangash, police chief in the town of Kohat, where Wednesday's bombing took place. Sixteen people were wounded, hospital officials said.

Many shops were destroyed.

Witness Inayat Orakzai told Reuters news agency: "The bus, which was filled with passengers, was about to take off when a teenage boy came near the door of the bus and blew himself up."
