Gunmen Shoot Dead Influential Pro-Taliban Cleric in Pakistan
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - An influential cleric who supported the Afghan Taliban has been shot dead in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, officials said.
“Two unknown gunmen on a motorcycle” shot dead Maulana Abdullah Zakiri as he was on his way to a mosque," senior police official Abdul Razzaq told AFP.
Zakiri had been living in Quetta for a long time and had no known disputes with anyone. However, his family has accused Afghan intelligence services of his murder.
