A violent attack on an Islamabad court leaves 11 dead

Gunmen burst shooting into a district court complex in the Pakistani capital Islamabad Monday, before at least two suicide bombers detonated their explosives. A judge and several lawyers are reported to be among those killed. At least 24 people were wounded. No group claimed responsibility.
