Pakistan Church Bombing: Death Toll Rises To 81

“PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistan police official says the death toll from a church bombing has risen to 81 as angry Christians protested the deadliest attack ever in Pakistan against members of their faith.

Police official Noor Khan says the death toll from Sunday’s bombing in the northwestern city of Peshawar rose overnight to 81, after three more of the wounded died.

A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers.

A wing of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing and said they would continue to target non-Muslims until the U.S. stops drone attacks in the remote tribal region.

Angry Christians blocked roads around the country Monday to protest the bombings.

Christians are a minority in Pakistan and have often been attacked by militants.”
