    A twin-suicide bombing outside a church in Peshawar in Pakistan has killed at least 75 people, in one of the worst attacks on Christians in the country.

    Two bombers blew themselves up as worshippers were coming out of the city’s historic All Saints church after attending Sunday Mass, police say.

    Relatives of the victims gathered at the scene to protest against the government’s failure to protect them.

    Militants linked to Pakistani Taliban have said they carried out the bombing.

    The group, Jandullah, said it was in retaliation US drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal northwest.

    Sunday’s twin attacks targeted Peshawar’s historic All Saints Church as hundreds of worshippers were attending Mass.
