Terrorist attack on Methodist church in Pakistan

A suicide bomb and gun attack on a Methodist church in Pakistan has killed at least five people, reports say.

The attack happened in the city of Quetta, some 65km (40 miles) from the border with Afghanistan.

More than a dozen people were also wounded after gunmen wearing explosive vests tried to enter the building.

The two attackers were intercepted at the entrance, the region’s home minister, Sarfaraz Bugti, said on Twitter.

Had the men not been stopped there could have been hundreds of casualties, he added.
