An explosion at a shrine in northwest Pakistan has left three people dead and 26 others wounded, police said.
A bomb was planted on a bicycle near the shrine's main gate. It exploded during a religious festival, said Muhammad Hussain, police chief of Nowshera district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Many shrines have been attacked during religious festivals in Pakistan by a hardline sect that considers them non-Muslim activities.
