Pakistan Christians honor Sri Lanka victims


Pakistan's minority Christians have gathered at a church in the Islamabad amid tight security to pay their respects to the victims of Easter bombings in Sri Lanka in which more than 350 people were killed.

It was the first such gathering since Sunday, when suicide bombers attacked churches, hotels and other sites in Sri Lanka.

The participants at Thursday's special service lit candles and observed a minute of silence to remember the victims of the attacks.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka enjoy close relations and Pakistan helped train Sri Lankan army officers in their civil war battle against Tamil rebels.
