Suicide Bomber Kills At Least Nine People In Pakistani Church

A suicide bomber attacked a church packed with worshippers Sunday in Pakistan, leaving at least nine people dead and more than 20 others injured.

Two attackers targeted a Methodist church in Quetta, but only one managed to detonate his vest, said Sarfaraz Bugti, the interior minister of Balochistan province. The second attacker was shot by a church security guard before he detonated his explosives, Bugti said.

There were 400 worshipers inside the church when it came under attack, Balochistan's Inspector General of Police Moazzam Ansari and Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti reportedly said.
