10 men and 8 women stormed the Gordon College Chapel on April 02, 2010 and held the worshipers hostage near the capital Islamabad of Pakistan.
The stand-off at the Gordon College Chapel in the city of Rawalpindi, near the capital Islamabad, began hours earlier when 10 men and eight women wielding automatic rifles and other weapons stormed the compound following a Good Friday worship service there, witnesses said.
"They threw Bibles on the floor and started throwing things around. They also entered the adjacent residential area and started yelling at the women and children at home," said Shaban Gill, a relative of the attacked residents.
"They started looting the [compound] at gun point [and] harassed the women and children, taking all their cash and jewelry."
Another resident, Imran Nasir, said his wife and their two daughters, ages 18 months and 4-years-old, were taken as hostages by the armed group.
