Shia family shot dead in Pakistan

Six members of a Shia Muslim family have been shot dead in Pakistan, in a suspected sectarian attack. Two men, their wives, a 17-year-old maid and one of the men’s year-old daughter were gunned down in the Mughalpura district of Lahore. Lahore police chief Tariq Saleem Dogar said the victims were bound and gagged before they were killed. There is a history of tension between extremist groups within the Shia and Sunni communities in Pakistan. Friday’s killings came a week after a suicide bombing at a Shia mosque in Karachi left 14 people dead. No-one has so far claimed responsibility for the Lahore killings and no-one has been arrested.
