Pakistan killings lead to protests


HUNDREDS of Pakistani minority Shiites blocked a key road on the outskirts of the city of Quetta for a second straight day to protest against the killing of 11 coal miners by the so-called Islamic State group.

The miners, members of the country’s minority Shiite Hazara community, were abducted by Sunni militants in Baluchista­n province on Sunday, taken to a nearby mountain and shot.

Six died at the scene and five, critically wounded, died on the way to hospital.
