  • Two Christians killed in Quetta firing
  • QUETTA: Two Christians were killed in a
    drive-by shooting in Quetta Sunday. It
    was the second such attack on Christians
    in Quetta this month.
    Unidentified gunmen on motorbikes
    opened fire at a group of Christians in
    Quetta’s Esa Nagri neighbourhood,
    injuring at least five people, police
    said.
    The injured were taken to Bolan
    Medical Complex where two of them
    died. They were identified as Azhar
    Iqbal and Rahid.
    Two girls were also injured.
    Meanwhile, dozens of Christian
    community members, including heirs
    of the victims, gathered to protest the
    killings.
    They burnt tyres and suspended
    traffic on Barori Road and Sabzal
    Road for nearly three hours, chanting
    slogans against the provincial
    government.
    Protesters blocked the road by placing
    bodies of the two victims in the
    middle. They also protested lack of
    medical facilities in the hospital.
    Police said they were investigating the
    attack.
    The shooting comes just weeks after
    four Christians were shot dead in the
    city. The attack was claimed by a
    banned militant group.
    In December last year, two suicide
    bombers blew themselves up at a
    Quetta church, which was packed with
    worshippers, killing nine people and
    wounding over a dozen.
    It was the third terrorist attack on
    Christians in last four months during
    which at least 15 people have been
    killed.
