At least 11 children were killed and 24 others injured, some of them critically, when a bomb exploded near a market in Pakistan's port city of Karachi early Wednesday, the Geo News reported citing a political leader.

The explosive material was planted on a motorbike, said police.

The explosion occurred in the city's Lyari area shortly after a football match ended, said Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Sania Naz, who was elected from Lyari constituency.

Local media said that the people were leaving after a football match between two local teams of children at about 2.40 a.m. just when the bomb went off at the football ground.

Most of the killed and wounded were children aged between 12 and 14, said the reports.

Javed Nagori, a member of the Sindh provincial assembly and the chief guest at the football match, was also injured in the blast.
