Minister who lost family in bombing returns to work

A Church of Scotland minister whose mother, nephew and niece were killed in a suicide bombing of a church in Pakistan has returned to work in his parish.

Reverend Aftab Gohar's two uncles, three cousins and two close friends were among the 122 killed in the bombing - thought to be the deadliest ever attack on Pakistan's Christians.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast, Reverend Gohar said, "Many members of my extended family were killed or injured - so that was very sad and very shocking news."

"There is a tiny minority of people who just want to destroy everything and... because of this problem, nobody is safe in Pakistan."
