UNITED NATIONS - A large number of people on Friday staged a rally in front of United Nations Headquarters in New York to protest the targeted killing of Hazaras in Quetta, and urged the world body to help in protecting the community members.

“Stop Killing Hazaras,” the protesters shouted. “We want justice ...Wake up UN,” they demanded while shouting anti-government slogans.

 Speakers at the rally called on the Pakistan government to provide adequate protection to Hazaras, crack down on the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militants and bring the culprits to justice. A memorandum to this effect was submitted to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
