Peshawar: A suicide bomber struck a market in the volatile South Waziristan tribal region of northwest Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least one person and injuring eight others, officials said.

The bomber struck when the market in Shakai area was packed with people shopping for sacrificial animals for the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha festival, they said.

The blast left one person dead and eight others injured, the officials said.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Pakistan Army had conducted a major operation in South Waziristan Agency last year to flush Taliban fighters out of the area bordering Afghanistan.
