London Euro-MP condemns Pakistan bombings

LONDON’S Green MEP Jean Lambert has condemned yesterday’s suicide bombings in Pakistan which killed more than 80 people – many of them Christians.


Ms Lambert, Chair of the European Parliament’s delegation to South Asia, including Pakistan, has called for better protection for religious minorities in the country following the two blasts – both outside a church in Peshawar.


She said: “These killing are an absolute tragedy, and all our thoughts are with the families and friends of those killed and injured.


“But they are just the latest attack on minorities in the country, and they underline the need for more state protection and better local measures to promote greater understanding between followers of different faiths – and none.”
