Pakistan protesters march for their missing loved ones

Protesters from Pakistan's Balochistan province are marching 700 km to draw attention to the disappearance of their loved ones.

They claim that security agencies have wrongly detained thousands of people.

The Pakistan government admits that about 1,000 people have gone missing in the last five years, but human rights organisations say the actual number is several times higher.

The protesters began their march on Wednesday from Balochistan's capital Quetta, and are expected to arrive in Karachi on Friday.

Hussain Askari reports on their journey.
