Pakistan riots after militant killed

One man has died in riots in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, following the killing of an Islamic extremist. Religious students went on the rampage after funeral prayers for Maulana Azam Tariq, a Sunni militant leader who was murdered on Monday. Tariq, 41, was among five people killed when the vehicle they were travelling in was attacked by gunmen on the outskirts of the capital. He 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. Correspondents say Sipah-e-Sahaba is one of the most extreme Sunni organisations in Pakistan. It has been blamed for much of the sectarian violence to have afflicted the country over the past two decades and is accused of having sympathies with the Afghan Taleban. Full Story
