At least 55 people have been killed in twin suicide bombings outside a munitions factory in the Pakistani town of Wah, police say.
The attack is the deadliest on a military site in Pakistan’s history.
The bombs hit the city, 30km (18 miles) north of Islamabad, as workers left. Many people were injured.
A spokesman for the Pakistani Taleban said they had carried out the attacks, which he said were a response to army violence in the country’s north-west.
