A spokesperson reported that the suicide bombing was specifically targeting Christians. The explosion, which occurred near children’s rides, killed 72 people and injured more than 340. At least 24 children were killed in the explosion, which was perpetrated by islamic jihadists. On Monday much of the towns businesses and schools remained closed. The Taliban-splinter group, Jamat-ul-Ahrar, vowed more attacks such as this.

In 2013 a suicide bombing at a Christian church in Peshawar killed 80 people.
