Breaking News, Attack on Churches in Youhanabad, Lahore, Pakistan

Two Suicide bombers blew themselves up in the premises of Christ Church and St. John’s Church Youhanabad, Lahore.
The bombers were said to be between 16- 17 years old who tried to enter the churches but were stopped by two Christian volunteers. One suicide bomber was handed over to the Police but he blew himself up in the premises. The other bomber who also had a gun, was stopped forcefully by a volunteer guard, but he also blew himself along with the volunteer, killing 17 people on the spot, whereas more than 70were injured. However, the seriously injured men, women and children are still hanging between life and death at various hospitals in Lahore.
The bomb blasts were so powerful that they shook the whole area, broke window panes and left behind blood, bodies, and
empty shoes all around the churches premises.
This incident was highly condemned by the Christian and Muslim community leaders across the board and the Government was condemned for not providing appropriate security to the vulnerable Christian minorities.
The Sunday attacks on the churches at Lahore were the worst on the Christian community since a devastating September 2013 double suicide bombing at the All Saints’ Church, Peshawar that killed 99 women and children and 143 people of all ages were injured, and the Diocese of Peshawar is still looking after the grieved families and is running all kinds of rehabilitation programmes for the injured.
The Rt. Revd. Humphrey S. Peters and the Diocese of Peshawar have very strongly condemned these attacks. A three day mourning has also been announced to show solidarity with affectees of the Lahore incident.
