At least 26 people have been killed and two dozen wounded in an attack on a mosque outside Pakistan's capital. Police say gunmen stormed the mosque during Friday prayers after an explosion at a checkpoint at an army installation near the military headquarters in Islamabad's sister city of Rawalpindi. A rescue official at the scene said 27 wounded people were evacuated. The attack underscores the resilience of militant networks despite army offensives against the Taliban in the northwest regions bordering Afghanistan.
