Pakistan: 500 attack Christian neighborhood
Catholic World News - May 03, 2011
Following the discovery of a burnt copy of the Qur’an in a Christian cemetery, 500 extremists attacked a Christian neighborhood in Gujranwala, a city in Punjab province in northeastern Pakistan. Fearing for their lives, numerous Christians fled their homes.
The attack occurred on April 30, one day before President Barack Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden. Three Christians and more than 20 extremists were arrested following the attacks.
