At least 59 people died in an attack on a police training academy in Pakistan. More than 200 cadets were at the facility when the gunmen in suicide vests stormed in.

Some of the cadets were reportedly taken hostage during the incident in Quetta late on Monday. More than 100 people were wounded in the attack, which lasted around five hours. According to officials, two of the gunmen blew themselves up and another was shot.

People believe that militants from the Islamist group Laskher-e-Jhangvi were responsible.

Difficult words: cadet (a young trainee in the police force), storm in (attack quickly), militant (a person who prefers violent methods in support of a political or social cause).
