While many of us celebrated Resurrection Day with our loved ones, our brethren in Pakistan were targets of terror.
On Easter weekend, two events in Pakistan served as reminders of the precarious position of Christians living in societies with Muslims majorities.

On the afternoon of Easter Sunday, while members of Pakistan's increasingly beleaguered Christian minority celebrated the holiday, a suicide bomber detonated his device, killing at least 70 people and wounding at least 300 more. more >>
A Muslim man who admits to killing a peaceful Muslim shopkeeper in Scotland days before Easter, claims that he committed the heinous act because he believes the victim disgraced the prophet Muhammad by wishing Christians a "very happy Easter" on Facebook.
