PESHAWAR - A bomb blast outside a hotel in a garrison town in northwest Pakistan killed nine people and wounded 12 on Thursday, police said.

The bomb went off in the town of Risalpur, near the end of the fasting month of Ramadan when people were busy shopping for the Muslim festival of Eid falling next week.

"It was a remote-controlled bomb and exploded when the market area was crowded with people," the area's police chief Mohammad Hussain said.
