At least six gunmen entered a district court complex in Islamabad’s legal district on Monday and launched a gun and suicide bomb attack killing 11 and wounding 25.  The attack started around 9:00 am with gunfire and was followed by twin suicide blasts.  Attackers were seen firing at random into the complex and launching grenades before escaping into the city.  The two suicide attacks targeted specific offices within the complex.   This attack was the largest in five years and came just after the government and the biggest militant coalition had announced a ceasefire.
