Over 40 killed in Shiite parade in Pakistan

At least 41 people were killed and scores injured when gunfire erupted during a Shiite Muslim parade in Pakistan’s southwestern city Quetta, police and officials said. The violence, which coincided with devastating attacks on Shiite processions in Iraq that left scores of pilgrims dead, triggered a rampage by mobs of Shiites who torched shops, burned tires and blocked roads. A senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity, put the death toll at 41. The dead included five policemen, he added. Officials in the city’s two hospitals said more than 120 people were injured, with several in serious condition. A Shiite political party announced a three-day mourning over the killings in Quetta.
