Peshawar, Pakistan - A medical official says the death toll from a suicide bomb attack on a historic church in northwestern Pakistan has risen to 43.
Sher Ali Khan, a doctor at a hospital in the city of Peshawar where the attack occurred on Sunday, says the blast also wounded over 70 people.
Police officer Mohammad Noor Khan says the bomber struck as worshippers were coming out of services at the church in the city's Kohati Gate district. He said the attacker's severed legs were found.
Hard-line militants have been blamed for previous attacks on Pakistan's Christian minority, as well as Muslim groups they consider heretics.- Sapa-AP
