Pakistanis hold demonstrations, vigil for church attack victims

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY Angry Christians demonstrated across Pakistan Monday in protest at Sunday's deadly church bombings which killed nearly 81 people. A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up outside a 130-year-old Anglican church after Sunday mass, the deadliest attack in recent history on Christians in the predominantly Muslim country. The explosions struck the historic white-stone All Saints Church in the city of Peshawar, near the frontier tribal areas where Islamist militants have their strongholds, as hundreds of parishioners, many of them women and children, streamed out of the building. More than 100 people were wounded, authorities said. The protests, joined by Muslims, were held in towns and cities around Pakistan, including Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar.
