At least eleven people have been killed after gunmen burst into a court before detonating two bombs in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad.
It threatened to derail revived peace talks between the government and the Pakistani Taliban who recently declared a month-long ceasefire. However, the group sought to distance themselves from the attack.
The judge, who was killed on the spot, could have been a target. He had rejected an appeal in 2013 to file a murder case against former President Pervez Musharraf over his order to storm a hardline mosque in Islamabad in 2007.
