Historic Christian Church Destroyed by Taliban

In September 2013, two suicide bombers linked to the Taliban attacked the All Saints Church in Peshawar, killing more than 80 people and destroying the historic church. It was the deadliest attack against Christians in Pakistan's history. Shiites, also a religious minority in Pakistan, have also been targeted by the Taliban in the past year. The ongoing attacks by the Taliban prompted many to question if the government should move ahead with plans to begin negotiations with the Taliban.

On September 23, 2013, a 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit Baluchistan, an area of deserts and mountains in Pakistan. The earthquake caused hundreds of mud houses to collapse on residents. At least 327 people were killed.
