Drones and the Peshawar church bombing

From the Revd Neswyn Firth

Sir, - In response to the letter from the Revd Dr David Gosling (4 October), my husband and I were also utterly dismayed by the killing of so many people in Peshawar, where we know many who are affected.

I, too, decry the use of drones, but question whether innocent civilians are deliberately targeted, as were those at worship in All Saints'. Does Dr Gosling mean to imply that revenge is justified?

Very rarely do we hear of Christians retaliating in any of the many parts of the world where they are attacked.

May we continue to uphold them in prayer, and give them our support, as they strive to forgive and work for peace and reconciliation.
