PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A suicide bomber killed 30 people, including a provincial legislator, gathered for the funeral of a businessman in northern Pakistan on Tuesday, police said.

Legislator Imran Mohmand, formerly associated with an anti-Taliban party, was elected as an independent in May but joined the party of former cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan.

The bombing occurred in Mardan, in the northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, which is controlled by Khan's party.
