A bomb attack targeting an election candidate's office in northwest Pakistan on Sunday killed at least five people and wounded 22, police said, the latest violence ahead of polls next month.

The device exploded outside the office of an independent candidate in the garrison city of Kohat, which is adjacent to Pakistan's restive tribal areas along the Afghan border.
