Two gunmen on a motorcycle killed a Shiite Muslim businessman in northwestern Pakistan on Friday, a day after an assailant fatally shot an activist of a Sunni extremist group in the same region. Anwar Ali Shah, a 35-year-old tractor dealer, was sitting outside his shop in Dera Ismail Khan - a town in North West Frontier Province - when the attackers opened fire on him, said Bahawal Khan, an area police chief. One of Shah's salesmen was wounded. While Khan declined to say who might have been behind the attack, it came after a gunman in nearby Tank shot dead an activist of Sipah-e-Sahaba, an outlawed Sunni militant group accused of scores of sectarian killings.
