He said they would attend Christmas services.

Muslim volunteers in Indonesia are also on standby to provide additional security if requested.

"We're making efforts to complete repairs and renovation before Christmas, but it seems hard in view of the lot of damage", said Pastor Simon Bashir (the leading pastor of the Quetta church).

Amid the high alerts and threats, we must not forget that Christmas has always been celebrated in the country with fervour.

In Pakistan Christians are minority which is frequently being targeted by Islamic militants.

A Christian Kaleem Masih lost his aunt in the Easter attack past year, and his wife got wounded too in Quetta chuch terror attack.

German police brought in experts and an explosives robot to investigate a suspicious package at a Christmas market in the city of Bonn late on Friday.

ONLY half of the people who attend church over the festive period will go on Christmas Day itself, a new poll has suggested.

Two days ago, Saint Mary Church held memorial services for the deceased and invited their families to join them. "We will fulfill our religious duty by celebrating it with smiles on our faces".

In Malaysia, a police official said that American's president Trump's decision on Jerusalem increased attacks on Christians.

Jerusalem, revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, is home to Islam's third holiest site and has been at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for decades.

Protests across the Muslim world in Asia and the Middle East have largely been peaceful. The police Detective Inspector General Haider Ashraf said that every church will be monitored, using CCTV cameras which is one security measure.

Many Palestinian Christians oppose Trump's announcement and say they have no fear of attacks.

George Antone, a Catholic citizen of Gaza, under Palestinian Hamas group control, said,"Trump's decision offended all Palestinians, be they Christians or Muslims".
