Three people are dead and at least another 25 are injured following a powerful explosion in Pakistan Friday.

The incident happened in a scarcely populated area of the Bajour tribal region close to the Afghanistan border.

Initial reports suggest the blast was caused by a remotely detonated roadside bomb.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

However, the area is known to have a heavy Taliban presence with insurgent attacks occurring on a regular basis.
