Question: Do you have any reaction to militants who shot and killed four people, including at least three Hindu doctors, in southern Pakistan in what officials fear could be an incident of sectarian violence?
Answer: We have seen the reports of these murders. We understand that an investigation is underway and we look forward to seeing the perpetrators brought to justice.
We condemn all violence directed at religious, ethnic and other minorities. We call attention to the issue of sectarian violence in the Human Rights Report and the International Religious Freedom Report, issued annually by the Department of State.
