Priest killed by gunmen in Pakistan attack
On Sunday, a Pakistani gunman killed a Christian priest and wounded another as clerics travelled home from church in the northwestern city of Peshawar. The attackers were reportedly on motorcycles when they opened fire on the car, killing Pastor William Siraj instantly. No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the shooting. In 2013, dozens of people died in Peshaware after a suicide bombing was initiated outside of a church, marking one of the deadliest attacks on Pakistan’s Christian population. The Church of Pakistan took to Twitter to condemn the attack, stating that the organization demanded justice and protection for Christians.
