Seventy people have died after a twin suicide and bomb attack at a Pakistani paramilitary police training centre near Peshawar.

It was the bloodiest attack in the country since a US raid killed al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden earlier this month.
Nearly all the victims are believed to have been recruits who were about to be bussed home on leave from the centre.
The explosions detonated as newly trained cadets were getting into coaches for a 10-day leave after their course, and they were wearing civilian clothes, police said.
It was the deadliest attack in the nuclear-armed Muslim country this year and came as Pakistan's military and civilian leadership was plunged into crisis over the killing of al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden by US commandos.
The attacks took place in the Shabqadar area, about 19 miles north of Peshawar, the main city in the northwest region where militants linked to the Taliban and al Qaeda have repeatedly attacked government forces.
"Seventy people have been killed," the police chief of the northwestern Charsadda district, Nisar Khan Marwat, told AFP.
"Sixty-five of them are from the paramilitary police. Five dead bodies of civilians were taken to Shabqadar hosiptal," he added.
