Terrorists associated with the Islamic State have claimed responsibility for killing two Christians in a drive-by shooting outside a church in southwestern Pakistan Sunday.
Over the weekend, unidentified gunmen on motorbikes opened fire at a group of Christians gathered outside a church in Quetta, capital of Balochistan province, officials said.
“Four men on two motorbikes opened indiscriminate fire, killing two people while injuring three others,” local police official Abdul Razzaq Cheema told AFP.
Local official Javed Anwar Shawani told the outlet that “around 500” protesters blocked a road by placing the bodies of the two victims in the middle.
“We are negotiating with them to make them disperse and bury” the victims, he added.
The shootings, later claimed by members of the the Islamic State group’s local franchise, comes just weeks after four Christians from a single family were gunned down on Easter Sunday.
