Murdered Pakistan politician buried in Karachi


Hundreds of people have attended the funeral of the murdered vice-president of Pakistan's PTI party, Zahra Shahid Hussain, at a mosque in Karachi.

She was shot dead outside her home in Karachi by gunmen on a motorcycle.

PTI leader Imran Khan has blamed one of his political rivals for the killing.

On his Twitter feed, Mr Khan said he was holding the leader of Karachi's dominant MQM party, Altaf Hussain, responsible for her death - a claim the MQM has strongly denied.
