The Church of Pakistan (United) has accused the government there of failing to properly protect the country's Christian churches, in the wake of two separate terror attacks in Lahore over the weekend.

Raheel Sharoon, development officer for The Church of Pakistan told Premier's 'News Hour' it was because of "God's grace" that Sunday's atrocity, which led to the killing of 15 worshippers didn't result in the deaths of hundreds more.
