A twin suicide attack outside a church killed at least 25 people and wounded 46 others in the restive northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Sunday, officials said.

"At least 25 people were killed and 46 others were wounded in the bombing outside the church," senior police official Mohammad Ismail told AFP.

Bomb disposal squad chief Abdul Haq said two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the church when people were coming out after Sunday mass.
