Hundreds of protesters have gathered outside the Pakistani parliament to demand the government do more to end sectarian violence.

The demonstration in Islamabad follows the killing of nearly two dozen Shias in the northern part of the country, the latest in a spate of targeted killings against the nation's Shia minority in Balochistan, Gilgit, and Karachi.
