PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A suspected suicide bomber killed at least 10 people and wounded 29 in an attack on a funeral on the outskirts of the northwestern Pakistan city of Peshawar on Sunday, a police official said.

The deputy speaker of the provincial assembly, Khushdil Khan, was at the funeral, but he was unharmed.

"It seemed to be a suicide attack," the police official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "And the target is believed to be Khushdil Khan."

Khushdil is a leader in the Awami National Party, the dominant political party in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, and has raised a tribal militia to battle militants in his area.
