Gunmen open fire on church - two dead and eight hurt in sick attack

The sick attack in Quetta, Pakistan, comes amid an onslaught of violent persecution against the country’s Christian community.

Investigators said the group had just left the town’s Christian church when the men opened fire. They then sped away from the scene.

Eight worshippers were taken to hospital and two people were pronounced dead.

Television pictures showed members of Quetta’s Christian community burning car and bicycle tyres while protesting the shooting.
