For Christians in Pakistan, the New Year has begun with attacks on their worship places, with three separate incidents in less than a week, including a church being set on fire.

 

On 7 January, items on top of a church roof were set on fire in Manga Mandi, on the outskirts of Lahore. The Apostolic Church is in the village of Baath, where about 50 Christian families live.
