At least eight people are believed to have died and about 30 wounded at a Church in Pakistan following a suicide bomb attack on Sunday.

Two suicide bombers are believed to have entered a Methodist church in the restive southwestern city of Quetta in Balochistan province.

No terrorist group has claimed the attack yet.

The police were able to stop one of the suicide bombers by shooting him outside the church premises, while the other bomber managed to get inside the main building where he blew himself up.

A minister in the church who spoke to reporters stated that the church usually has about 250 people who attend church service, but because it was close to Christmas, they had about 400 people who attended the church on Sunday.

Christians in Pakistan has often faced prosecution because they occupy about 1.6 percent of the country’s population of about 200 million.
