A Christian group says it wants to help victims from a suicide bombing in Pakistan, which took the lives of nine churchgoers and injured many more.
ISIS claimed responsibility for its first major attack on Christians in Pakistan, where 400 worshippers were gathered at Bethel Memorial Methodist Church.
Describing the attack, ICC reports on its website that two suicide bombers exchanged gunfire with security personnel outside the church in the city of Quetta. One bomber was killed but the second one entered the church entrance. Fifty-seven people were wounded.
William Stark with International Christian Concern says the death toll could rise to 10 victims because a child remains in critical condition.
"So we're still kind of picking up all of the pieces following this attack," he says.
The church bombing follows similar attacks in 2013, 2015, and 2016.
Stark says ICC plans a long-term involvement with the bombing victims, since permanent damage to an arm or leg can hinder their ability to work and support themselves in a country that already discriminates against Christians.
