Peshawar - A government official says the death toll from twin suicide bombings in Pakistan has jumped to 102 with 115 people wounded.

A suicide bomber and a suspected car bomb devastated several government buildings, shops and houses in Yakaghund town of Mohmand district in Pakistan's northwest tribal belt.

Meraj Din says authorities are still removing debris after the bombers struck seconds apart.

It was this year's deadliest attack in Pakistan.

Video footage showed dozens of men searching through piles of yellow brick and mud rubble for survivors. Women and children were among the victims.

Mohmand is one of several areas in Pakistan's lawless tribal belt where Taliban and al-Qaida members are believed to be hiding.
