Police Attack Suspects Held

At least 18 suspects have been detained in Pakistan in connection with a machine-gun attack on police recruits on Sunday, the authorities say. Eleven trainee officers died and nine others were wounded in the incident in the capital of Balochistan province, Quetta. Police say they are treating the attack as sectarian – all the victims were minority Shias. The suspects rounded up overnight in Quetta were from the banned Sunni militant Sipah-e-Sahaba group, police say. Security has been tightened at Sunni and Shia places of worship in the city. Businesses and schools have closed in mourning for the cadets. No group has said it was behind the killing – the second in a week targeting Shias. Thousands of people have been killed in violence blamed on militants from the country’s Sunni and Shia communities since the late 1980s. Full Story
