Tribesmen in northwest Pakistan protest extra-judicial killings

Pashtun Tribesmen from northwest Pakistan placed 15 bloody bodies in front of government offices on Wednesday, claiming that they were the victims of extra-judicial killings by security forces. This 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. Given the lack of personal security and on-going sectarian conflict in the north western areas of Pakistan, travellers should exercise caution and avoid all travel in the Federally-Administered Tribal Areas, as well as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (formerly the North-West Frontier Province).
