Gunmen have attacked a court complex in Pakistan's capital Islamabad, killing 11 people and wounding 20.

Police said an unknown number of gunmen stormed the area where judges' chambers and lawyers' offices are located. The gunmen also threw hand grenades as well in the attack.

Pakistani television showed images of the area with windows blown out, walls torn and black-suited lawyers carrying what appeared to be dead and wounded from the buildings. Armed police ran into the area.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
