    Death toll hit 68 as the gunmen attacked worshippers from a minority sect in two areas of Lahore on Friday, taking hostages and raging hours-long battle with security forces, ARY NEWS reported.

    Fifty people were wounded in the attacks and are being treated in different medical facilities across the city.

    The gunmen opened fire shortly after Friday prayers and threw grenades at two worship places of Ahmadis in residential neighborhoods of Model Town and Garhi Shahu in Lahore.

    Police took positions and crawl toward the building where gunmen were present.

    Near 45 dead bodies have been found from compound at Garhi Shahu only as the gunmen held the people gathered to offer prayer hostages.

    In Model Town, site of the other attack, police said one gunmen had been arrested and another killed. Other attackers were said to escape and one fired at a television van before the area was made safe, news reports said.

    This is shameful. The Holy Prophet Mohammad SAAW never treated the Kafirs & Minorities like this. This is a disgrace to Islam and no one claiming to be follower of Islam or our Holy Prophet even think like this. shame on us
