At least six Germans have been slightly injured in the massive bomb attack on the Marriot luxury hotel in Pakistan's capital Islamabad on Saturday, according to the German foreign ministry, reported dpa.

There was no indication that Germans were among the more than 50 people killed in the attack earlier in the day, a spokeswoman said, but added that this was based on only preliminary information.

"We have no complete picture yet and continue to be in close contact with the Pakistani authorities," she said.

At least 50 people died in the attack and more than 200 were injured when a suicide attacker blew himself up inside a van in front of the popular luxury hotel at around 7.30 pm local time (1330 GMT).
