A group of armed men, including two suicide attackers, stormed a court complex in the Pakistani capital on Monday in a rare terror attack in the heart of Islamabad that killed 11 people and wounded dozens.

One lawyer described it as a scene from hell, with blasts and firing all around. "My colleague was shot, and there was no one to help him. When I reached him, he was bleeding and crying for help," said Momin Ali.
