At least 63 people, mostly women and children, were killed and more than 300 others were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a children's park in Lahore, the capital of Pakistan's Punjab province on Sunday evening, officials said.

"A large number of people, majority of them women and children, were present in ‎Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park in Lahore when the suicide bomber blew himself up. Mostly women and children are killed and injured in the blast," Said Lahore Police Chief Dr. Haider Ashraf.

The police chief said there was an unusual rush of the people in the park due to the weekend and Easter. He said a large number of Christian community celebrating the holy day were present in the park.

"Most of the dead and injured are women and children," said Mustansar Feroz, the police superintendent for the area in which the park is located.
The courage of such an attack!

I'm waiting for the news media to finally cover the Christian holocaust in the world - in the Middle East and South Asia primarily.

We hear "N civilians killed, M wounded" but they don't mention, or only mention in passing, that Christians were targeted on the most holy holiday.

I really don't like that "women and children" formulation, mentioned three times in this short excerpt. I bet the majority were also men and women, or men and children. You're only saying that two categories are greater than the remaining one category.
