Pakistani Sunni militant killed

Pakistani Sunni militant leader Maulana Azam Tariq has been shot dead in the capital, Islamabad. He was among five people killed when the vehicle they were travelling in was attacked by gunmen on the outskirts of the city on Monday, police say. Mr Tariq, 41, was the head of the Sunni militant group Sipah-e-Sahaba and a member of parliament. No group has said it carried out the attack.

It is accused of having sympathies with the Afghan Taleban, and of carrying out dozens of sectarian attacks against Pakistan’s Shia minority in the past decade. Full Story
