New Crusades: Taliban Suicide Bombers Attack Pakistani Christians in Court
Pakistani Christians were hit by two gun- and suicide-bomb attacks on Friday, leaving 12 dead and at least 54 wounded.
The Associated Press reports Taliban “militants” stormed the Christian colony near Peshawar, early in the morning. Four attackers and one Christian were killed in the ensuing shoot-out with security forces, along with three security officials and two civilian guards wounded. The swift response from security teams was credited with preventing more deaths.
“Local police official Shaukat Khan said four suicide bombers entered the Christian colony. One of them went into a church, but no one was there at the time. He said the attackers killed one Christian in the neighborhood. It was not immediately clear if any of the suicide bombers had detonated their explosives,” the Associated Press writes. – READ MORE
