Thousands Gather in Lahore for Pashtun Rights


Several thousand people attended a rally in Pakistan’s second largest city Lahore this weekend to demand justice for the country’s ethnic Pashtun population, despite an initial crackdown by local authorities. The rally was one of a series, planned to demand an end to extra judicial killings and the return of victims of enforced disappearances. VOA’s Ayesha Tanzeem was there and brings us this report.
