Anti-Shia Terrorists killed Eight Shia Muslims in Pakistan

Police say gunmen riding on a motorcycle have killed eight Shia Muslims in two attacks in south-west Pakistan.

A senior police officer, Shaukat Ajmad, said assailants had opened fire on a car on Saturday, killing six people in Quetta, the capital of the impoverished south-western Baluchistan province.

Minutes later, they shot and killed two people in a rickshaw in the same area.

Extremists have targeted Shi’a Muslims over the past three decades. In recent years, Wahhabis attacks on Shias have become far more common.
