Pakistanis slam killing of Shia Muslims

Hundreds of Pakistani people have taken to the streets in the southern city of Karachi to protest against the killing of Shia Muslims across the country.

The protests come after heavily armed pro-Taliban militants shot dead at least 25 Shia Muslims at point blank range after pulling them off buses in northern Pakistan.

Hundreds of Shia Muslims have been killed in various parts of the violence-hit country over the past few months.

The killing of Shias is to such extent that it has caused international outrage, with rights groups and regional countries, including Iran, expressing concern over the ongoing genocide.

Local sources say thousands of Shia Muslims have been killed in various regions of the militancy-hit country over the past few years.
