Two Sunnis shot dead in DI Khan, Pushing Sectarian Conflict

Two Sunnis shot dead in DI Khan

PESHAWAR: Two Sunnis were shot dead on Sunday in the second apparent sectarian attack in Dera Ismail Khan in as many days, said a senior police official. Muhammad Shoaib and Asad Khan were killed one day after a Shia couple were shot dead by armed motorcyclists in the same area. The two men were coming out of a mosque when the gunmen opened fire, before escaping on a motorbike, police official Ehsanullah Khan told AFP. “It seems to be a sectarian killing,” he added. So far no one has been arrested in connection with either attack. afp
