A suspected suicide attack at a government office in north-west Pakistan has killed at least 26 people.

A faction of the Pakistani Taliban said it carried out the attack, which left more than 45 others wounded.

The bomber in Mardan reportedly arrived on a motorbike and blew him-self up when stopped by a security guard outside the state building.

The office is usually crowded with people queuing up to get ID cards.

The attack is one of the deadliest since last December's massacre of 150 pupils and teachers in Peshawar.
