Rawalpindi suicide attack kills 35

About 35 people have been killed in a suicide attack in Rawalpindi.

Police said two bombers mounted on a motorbike blew themselves up in a busy street, near a bank where people were queuing for their salaries, injuring a further 60 people.

The blast took place in a car park behind the four-star Shalimar hotel, next to a branch of the National Bank of Pakistan.

Orla Guerin reports from Rawalpindi.
