Pakistan fails to stop killings of Shias

Nearly 3,000 Shias in Baluchistan province killed in sectarian violence over the last decade.

    Sectarian violence in Pakistan's southwestern Balochistan province led to the dismissal of the local government last month.

    The central government has taken over, but attacks continue against minority Hazara Shia Muslims.

    According to one estimate, over the last ten years, nearly 3,000 Shias in Quetta, Balochistan's provincial capital, have been killed in attacks.
