Hazara killings reverberate in Pakistan
In Pakistan, the Shi’ite minority is protesting the killing of Hazara coal miners in an attack claimed by the Islamic State militants. In Quetta, hundreds of Hazara mourners have joined a sit-in protest in sub-zero temperatures since January 3. They are refusing to bury the 11 victims until Prime Minister Imran Khan guarantees their protection.
“No one slaughters animals as fearlessly as they cut off the necks of our people. This is the murder of all humanity,” one Hazara protester told to the Pashtun Express.
