Government officials in the area said 29 people were killed and 37 wounded, at least 20 of whom are in critical condition.
Tribesman said members of the pro-government Zakhakhel tribal militia were the target of the attack. Members of the militia -- or "lashkar" -- were filling their vehicles at the station when the bomb exploded.
