A Christian community in the Pakistani city of Lahore came under attack by an angry Muslim mob over the weekend,¬†following an alleged blasphemy incident. Houses were burned down and property destroyed in what was the latest assault on the country’s increasingly beleaguered Christian minority. It also is yet another episode of the sort of sectarian violence eating away at the Pakistani state. Hundreds of Pakistani Christians took to the streets across the country on Sunday, demanding better protection. Read a reported account of the mob attack, by TIME’s Omar Waraich.
