A roadside bomb killed six people - including three foreigners - and wounded 25 near a girls' school in northwest Pakistan Wednesday, according to police reports.


Local TV channels reported foreign aid workers and security officials were among the casualties.



The explosion rocked the Shahi Koto area of Lower Dir district as people were heading to an inauguration ceremony for the school, local police official Nawaz Khan said. The exact cause was not immediately clear.

A convoy that included security officials was hit during the blast as well.
