Pakistani town under curfew after clashes kill two
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Authorities imposed a round-the-clock curfew in a northwestern Pakistani town before dawn Tuesday after a rocket attack near a Shiite Muslim procession sparked sectarian violence, killing two people and wounding 19, police and officials said.
The troops quickly moved in to control the situation after a rocket landed near police protecting a procession to mark the holy festival of Ashoura in Hangu, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of Peshawar, said Ghani ur-Rahman, the town's mayor.
The men who died were Sunni Muslims, and most of those wounded were policemen, he added.
