Pakistani Christians participate in a rally against the killings of their religious brethren during a weekend riot, Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2009, in Islamabad, Pakistan. Police questioned more than 200 people to determine if the rioting that killed eight Christians was spontaneous or planned by a militant group, a Pakistani official said. Hundreds of Muslims attacked a Christian neighborhood in the eastern Pakistani city of Gojra on Saturday after reports that Christians had desecrated a Quran. The assault, which also torched dozens of homes, underscored the precarious existence of religious minorities in this Muslim-majority nation where extremist Islam is on the rise.
