Protests continued against Quetta carnage

QUETTA: Protests continued across the country on Sunday against the Quetta carnage which left over hundred people dead in a series of bombing in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province.

Families of victims of the deadly blasts refused to burry the dead and continued their protest along with coffins for the third consecutive day on Sunday.

Demonstrators in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and other parts of the country demanded that the Balochistan government be removed and the Pakistan army be called in.

Protesters belonging to Wahdatul Muslimeen and members of civil society staged a sit-in in Rawalpindi while the Imamia Students Organization protested outside the Governor’s House in Lahore.

Protest demonstrations were also held in Larkana, Sakkur, Jaccobabad, Dera Ghazi Khan, Bhakkar, Chakwal Bahawalnagar, Silakot, Peshawar and other parts of the country. The participants blocked roads in different cities. In Karachi, the MQM announced to observe Sunday as a day of mourning over the Quetta and Swat tragedies.
