Quetta shiites end protest pakistan feb 19 2013

Ethnic Hazara Afghan Shiite Muslim women participate in a hunger strike, in protest against the February 16 bombing in Pakistan targeting Shiites that killed 89 people, in Kabul on February 19, 2013. The hunger strikers began their fast in front of the UN office in the Afghan capital in reaction to the attack on the outskirts of the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, where thousands of Shiites are demanding army protection and refusing to bury the victims of Saturday's bomb attack on their ethnic Hazara community.
