Two Christian Men Killed in Third Attack in Quetta

[230] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Shooting Victims.

On April 17, four Islamic militants on motorcycles rode into a predominantly Christian neighborhood and shot two young Christian men. Rahib Khalid, 16, died at the scene, and Azhar Iqbal, 26, died later at the hospital. Two days earlier, three other Christians, including two girls, were injured in another local shooting. And on April 2, the day after Easter, militants killed four Christians and injured a girl in another attack. VOM is helping provide relief to many of those affected by these attacks. Pray for the families of Rahib, whose father is paralyzed and had relied on his son’s help, and Azhar as well as the families of the other shooting victims. Pray that local believers will be strengthened by this persecution and continue to reflect the love of Christ to their Muslim neighbors.
