Pakistanis pile bodies outside governor’s house in protest
Pashtun Tribesmen from northwest Pakistan dumped 15 bloody bodies in front of government offices on Wednesday, protesting against what they said were extra-judicial killings by security forces in the latest challenge to the government’s authority.
The protest in the northwestern city of Peshawar follows a three-day sit-in by members of the Shi’ite community alongside the bodies of 96 people killed in a sectarian bomb attack in the southwestern city of Quetta, and coincides with a protest against corruption in the capital that has attracted thousands of people who have set up tents in front of parliament…
“Where we should go to seek justice?” asked protester Gulajab Afridi.
“There is dark night in Khyber Agency. There is no one to check the barbarism of the Frontier Corps against local people. Our blood is worth nothing.”
