Thousands of mourners in Karachi have attended funerals a day after an attack on an Ashura procession claimed the lives of 43 people.

On Tuesday, people poured into the streets of Karachi to bury the victims killed by a bombing on a Muslim march on Monday.

At least 52 people were still in hospitals.

Since the 1980s, thousands of Shia Muslims have been killed by extremist groups in Pakistan.
