PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) -- A car bomb has hit a crowded bazar in a northwestern Pakistani tribal region near the border with Afghanistan.

Hospital officials say 26 people were killed and more than 50 others wounded.

Shops and vehicles were badly damaged in the morning attack in the town of Landi Kotal in the Khyber tribal region near the main border crossing point of Torkham, according to a government administrator, who says hundreds of people were in the bazaar when the parked explosives-laden car blew up.

TV footage showed the charred skeleton of the car and local residents rushing to help take the victims to hospitals.
