PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- Pakistan has been hit with the deadliest attack ever on the Christian minority.
Angry Christians protested in the northwestern city of Peshawar, where Pakistan police officials said the death toll from a church bombing has risen to 81. The AP reported that count was reached after three of the wounded people died.
The protests blocked roads around the country Monday, the AP said. Christians took to the streets burning tires and throwing stones at traffic.
A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers. Among those who were killed, at least 100 were injured.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan condemned the attack, saying the attackers have no religion. They are Islamic militants who claim anyone who is not a Muslim is a target, but the Prime Minister said they do not live by the teachings of Islam.
A wing of the Pakistani Taliban claims responsibility for the bombing and says it will continue to target non-Muslims until the U.S. stops drone attacks in the remote tribal region.
Christians are a minority in Pakistan and have often been attacked by militants.
Family members gathered Sunday to bury the bodies of 66 men, women and children who died in the attack.
