The attack on All Saints church in the provincial capital of northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after a service on Sunday is believed to be the deadliest ever to target the country’s small Christian minority. The death toll from the double suicide bombing rose to 81 on Monday as Christians all over the country protested against the blast, chanting slogans against the government and demanding greater security for the minorities.
