Tight security surrounded the funerals in Lahore on Tuesday of Pakistan Christians killed by two Taliban suicide bomb attacks.

Hundreds of Christians had to submit to security checks as they attended the funerals in Lahore’s biggest Christian neighbourhood.

The bomb attacks on Sunday left 17 dead and more than 80 wounded. Two days of protests by Christians followed, with two men lynched in the worst riot.

The attacks during Sunday services and rioting that followed have been condemned by representatives of all religions in Pakistan.
