Pashtuns continue to rally for greater rights in Pakistan

The protest movement began in February against an extrajudicial killing, but now it’s been transformed into a wider call for ethnic rights.

Following rallies in Peshawar and Lahore, ethnic Pashtuns gathered in Swat demanding greater rights in Pakistan.

They’re calling for the military to remove landmines and checkpoints – as well as the return of many who’ve disappeared.

Army commanders are angry at the anti-military protests but are offering to hold talks.
