At least 27 Shi'ite Muslims have been killed in a suicide bomb attack on a religious procession in northern Pakistan.
The attack in Hangu came on the day of Ashura, Shia Muslims' most important holy day.
Five people were also killed in Afghanistan in clashes between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims.
In Pakistan, Maulana Khurshid Anwar, a leader of the Shi'ite procession, said one of the blasts was near a stage from where he was about to address the mourners.
