Bike-borne assailants killed at least two persons and injured five others outside a church in Pakistan's Quetta city, police said.

NAIJ.com notes that Ahmed said that a young girl was among the wounded and that two others were in critical condition at a hospital.

After the attack, the community members with dead bodies staged a protest demonstration and blocked roads disrupting traffic, alleging government's "failure" to end attacks on Christians, according to the report.

Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo condemned the incident and expressed sorrow at the loss of precious lives.
