Just a day after Muslim terrorists stormed a shopping mall in Kenya, killing at least 68, the Taliban is suspected of orchestrating a suicide bomb attack on an historic church in Pakistan, killing at least 78.
Hundreds more were injured in the attacks that began midday yesterday in Nairobi, Kenya.
The latest attack this morning in Peshawar, Pakistan, occurred as hundreds of worshipers were coming out of the church in the city’s Kohati Gate district after services to get a free meal of rice offered on the front lawn, said a top government administrator, Sahibzada Anees.
“There were blasts and there was hell for all of us,” Nazir John, who was at the church with at least 400 other worshipers, told the Associated Press. “When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around.”
