Britain has condemned a terrorist bomb which killed at least 43 people in Pakistan.

A woman suicide bomber is believed to be responsible for the attack on a crowd of people queueing for food at an aid distribution centre.

The blast took place in the town of Khar in the tribal areas close to the Afghan border, where the Taliban and al Qaida have strongholds.

Reports say at least another 100 people were injured and there are fears the death toll may rise further.

Those affected are people displaced by recent fighting between militants and Pakistani armed forces.

In a statement issued by the Foreign Office in London, foreign minister Alistair Burt said: “This appalling attack on innocent refugees is a cruel reminder of the indiscriminate aims of the terrorist and an example of why the world must work together to do all we can to confront a menace without boundaries.”
