Pakistani Shiites rally against deadly attack

A Pakistani police officer says relatives of Shiites killed in a suicide bombing this week are rallying for the third straight day, refusing to bury their kin and demanding a crackdown on militants in southwestern Baluchistan province.

 

The officer, Ahmad Nawaz says the Shiites are protesting Tuesday's attack in Mastung district when a suicide bomber killed 28 Shiite pilgrims returning from Iran.

 

The protesters have placed the coffins of the victims on a road in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan, and refuse to move. (AP)
