Pakistan: Targeted killing of health professionals: Medical Action.
In mid-March 2002 when an Amnesty International delegation reached Karachi, the largest city in Pakistan, three doctors from the Shi'a minority community had been shot dead, three had survived attempts on their lives and seven had reportedly migrated within the previous week. The Government of Pakistan has on several occasions condemned sectarian violence. Amnesty International believes, however, that the government has systematically failed to exercise due diligence when it failed to prevent abuses against specific religious communities, to investigate such abuses and to punish the perpetrators.
