“Four men on two motorbikes opened indiscriminate fire, killing two people while injuring three others,” local police official Abdul Razzaq Cheema told AFP.

Similarly the attack happened in the Christian-majority Esa Nagri neighbourhood of Quetta, where hundreds gathered to protest the killings.

The Guardian report that “Around 500” protesters blocked a road by placing the bodies of the two victims in the middle, said local official Javed Anwar Shawani.

“We are negotiating with them to make them disperse and bury” the victims, he added.

The shooting comes just weeks after four Christians were shot dead in the city, an attack claimed by the Islamic State group.
