PESHAWAR, Pakistan, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- A senior Pakistani provincial minister was among eight people killed Saturday in a suicide bombing, officials said.

Bashir Ahmed Bilour died in surgery after a bomber detonated a device in Peshawar in northwest Pakistan.

The blast occurred near the site of a meeting of the Awami National Party and killed Bilour's personal secretary and a police officer, Dawn News said. Another 18 victims were injured.

Bilour was a senior leader of the ANP, which Dawn said was the largest and current ruling political party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
