Pakistan murder testimony doctor Baqir Shah shot dead

A doctor who testified that Pakistani security forces had killed a group of unarmed foreigners has, himself, been shot dead.

Dr Baqir Shah was gunned down in the city of Quetta after he contradicted police reports from earlier this year.

The reports had suggested the five Russian and Tajik victims had been suicide bombers.
