Sectarian violence spreads in Pakistan after days of unrest
By Saud Mehsud DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (Reuters) - Sectarian violence spread in Pakistan on Monday after clashes between minority Shi'ite and majority Sunni Muslims near the capital Islamabad prompted the government to impose a curfew and block mobile phone services over the weekend. Tensions are high this month as Shi'ites mark Muharram, an annual period of mourning which has often sparked bouts of violence. Rawalpindi, a garrison city near Islamabad, remained under curfew and tight security for three days after a Shi'ite procession on Friday degenerated into sectarian clashes which killed at least eight people.
