Security in Karachi tightened following an attack at the Pakistan Bible Society’s Christian Reading Library, next to the Trinity Church, on Thursday. Although the first attack – a hand grenade thrown from a passing vehicle – injured no one, the second attack – a planted car bomb, hospitalized 15 people. On Friday, Jan 16, 2004, protestors gathered at a rally in Lahore, Pakistan to condemn the attacks. The bombings was the first attack on Christians since August 2002.
