I've met with Christians in house churches several times in Lahore several times. Makes me wonder if some of those same Christians were killed in these terrible attacks to try and compete with the attacks in Belgium. Pray for the suffering families. The end times seem to coming soon.
From media: "A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on Easter Sunday, saying it intentionally targeted Christians. The suicide blast in the eastern Pakistan city of Lahore killed at least 67 people, a local government spokesman told CNN. More than 300 others were injured, police official Haider Ashraf said. The explosion ripped through the heart of Lahore on Sunday evening, at a time when many families were at the city's Gulshan Iqbal Park to celebrate the Easter holiday. Many women and children were among the victims.”
