Pakistan schools shut to mourn killings

Hundreds of Muslims stormed a Christian neighbourhood in Gojra city on
Saturday, burning dozens of houses.

Six Christians were burned to death and two died of gunshots.

The violence was prompted by allegations that some Christians had desecrated a

perpetrators of the crime to justice.”

A spokesman for Pakistan’s president said a judicial panel will probe the
incident.
