Two Christians were killed, five injured as Eessa Nagri come under attack in Quetta


At least two Christians were killed and five others injured after the Christian community came under yet another attack in the Balochistan capital on Sunday.

Initial reports suggest that unidentified men, riding a motorcycle opened fire on people exiting a church after attending the Sunday service in Essa Nagri neighbourhood of the city.
The injured were taken to a nearby hospital.
Meanwhile, the community members with dead bodies have staged a protest demonstration against the government’s failure to end attacks on Christians. They have blocked the Barori Road near Golimar Chowk for all traffic.
Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti has strongly condemned the attack and expressed deep sorrow over the loss of innocent lives. He said those involved in the attack will not be spared.
The attack comes two weeks after four members of a Christian family were gunned down in Quetta a day after the community celebrated Easter on April 1.
The family was travelling in a rickshaw when armed men on a motorcycle intercepted them and opened fire in the Balochistan capital.
