FAITH leaders in Bolton will hold a prayer vigil for the victims of a terror attack in Pakistan — which claimed 18 family members of a Bolton vicar.
Reverend Fayaz Adman, of St Paul with Emmanuel Church in Deane, jetted back to his native Peshawar after 85 people were killed in the extremist attack on Sunday.
Mr Adman was baptised, confirmed and ordained at the now destroyed All Saints Church in his native Peshawar.
The married father-of-two, aged 50, flew out to Pakistan to comfort his family on Monday.
The Emmanuel Church in Vicarage Street will hold the vigil at 6pm on Monday in tribute to the victims of the Peshawar atttack, which is thought to be the deadliest ever attack on Pakistan’s Christians.
Two Islamist militant groups with Taliban links said they ordered the attack to hit back at US drone strikes.
Faith leaders from the Christian and Muslim community in Manchester also will hold a vigil at 3pm tomorrow at St Edmunds Church in Whalley Range.
