approximately 14 of the victims were Christians while the majority have been identified as Muslims, according to the Associated Press (AP) as well as The Washington Post. Morning Star News reports the Christian fatalities may be closer to 45.
At least 29 of the overall deaths were “children enjoying an Easter weekend outing,” according to Reuters, while the number of people wounded has surpassed 300.
“Many of these are believed to be Christians as it is a common tradition for families to go to a local funfair to celebrate the birth of Christ after their Easter devotions,” reports the British Pakistani Christian Association. It says 29 of the victims were Christians.

Thanks. God bless.
