Shia Muslim Hazaras Refusing To Bury Pakistan Bomb Dead
A bomb on Saturday exploded through a busy market district, and killed at least 84 people while injuring another 169.
This massive attack – the second this year – was carried out by Sunni militants.
As many as 4,000 women began a sit-in in Quetta, in south-west Pakistan, on Sunday evening.
They blocked a road and also refused to bury the Hazara dead until actions are taken against the bombers, according to the AFP news agency.
This attack was the second bombing in Quetta within thirty-days. Last month, bombers hit a snooker hall in the city, which killed 90 people.
Another bomb imploded a Shia mosque earlier this month killing 24 people, raising the death toll to over 200 in less than two months this year, according to news reports.
Yesterday, Balochistan Governor Nawab Zulfikar Magsi said that local security forces were either “too scared or too clueless” to act.
