Reports emerged April 29 from Pakistan that authorities have arrested at least one person suspected of responsibility for bombing two churches in March, killing 17 people.
Citing unspecified “security agencies,” Pakistan Today reported that a man named Abid Baig Muaviya had been taken to an undisclosed location for interrogation in connection with the bombings. UK-based News Tribe reported that “as many as four” suspects had been arrested, but did not cite the source of its information.
The March 15 suicide-bomber attacks on two churches in Youhanabad, the main Christian district of Lahore, killed 17 and injured more than 80 people. Two Muslim men died amid protests that arose following the bombings.
