Lahore hit by another blasts – 2 churches hit

TIP Bureau report: Pakistan Taliban’s Outfit called Jamatul Ahrar carried out two bomb blasts targeting two local churches in Lahore which have killed at least 10 people, local officials say. According to local media the death toll has already crossed 14.

At least 50 people were reportedly hurt in the explosions at the Catholic church and Christ Church in the city’s Youhanabad area which is a Christian neighbourhood in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

Violent protests erupted after the blasts, with large crowds already in the area to attend Sunday mass.

Many experts suggest this is a new direction taken by the Pakistani Taliban to target other religions now in the country.

Pakistan’s Christian community has often been targeted by militants.
