Suspected Shiite gunmen killed two members of the rival Sunni Muslim sect Saturday in the northwest Pakistan city of Dera Ismail Khan, police said, a day after a suicide bombing at a Shiite leader's funeral killed 30 and set off sectarian riots. The shootings Saturday occurred in a market. Three other Sunnis were wounded when the gunmen rode by on a motorbike and fired, area police chief Miran Shah said. The attack occurred despite the presence of troops sent to patrol the city after Friday's suicide attack at a funeral where about 1,000 people had gathered to mourn Sher Zeman, a local Shiite leader gunned down the day before.
