Today, Gunmen armed with grenades attacked two mosques belonging to a minority Islamic sect, Muslim Ahmadi community during Friday prayers in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore.

Britain's Sky News reported that about 2,000 people were inside one of the sites at the time of the attack.

The Express Tribune newspaper reported that four blasts were heard at one of the mosques.

The mosques were several miles apart from each other in two residential neighborhoods in Pakistan's cultural capita

Geo Television reported five people had been killed in one of the mosques, in the Model Town area, with 10 injured.

Founded by Ghulam Ahmad, who was born in 1838, the Ahmadi sect has a number of unique views including that Ahmad himself was a prophet and that Jesus died aged 120 in Srinagar, capital of Indian-ruled Kashmir.

Ahmadis are known as Qadiani, and have tens of thousands of members.

The Ahmadis believe that Muhammad was not the final prophet, but they call themselves Muslims. This is against the view point of majority Muslims.
The government has declared them a non-Muslim minority and they are prohibited from calling themselves Muslims or engaging in Muslim practices such as reciting Islamic prayers.

Many Islamist militants believe it is permissible or honorable to kill non-Muslims, or even those Muslims who do not share their extreme views.

"Firing is still going on. The attackers are on the roof of the mosque and they are shooting at police. One of the attackers climbed atop the minaret of one of the mosques, firing an assault rifle and throwing hand grenades, TV footage showed.
