Deadliest Attack on Pakistan Christians Kills 75; Taliban Blamed, Says It Will Kill All Non-Muslims

A pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in Peshawar, Pakistan today (September 22, 2013), killing 75 people in the deadliest-ever attack on Pakistan's Christian minority, according to the Newser website.

The Jundullah wing of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility, with a spokesman saying, "All non-Muslims in Pakistan are our target, and they will remain our target as long as America fails to stop drone strikes in our country.

The latest U.S. drone strike came today, when missiles hit a pair of compounds in the North Wazinstan tribal area, killing six suspected militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The attack on the All Saints Church in Peshawar -- which also wounded 110 people -- occurred as at least 400 worshipers were leaving after services for a meal on the front lawn.
