Ahmadiya man killed in Pakistan

An Ahmadiya man was stabbed to death by an enraged Muslim in Pakistan on Monday, just days after gun, grenade and suicide attacks on the minority sect killed more than 80 people, the police said.
The stabbing took place in the town of Narowal, some 100 kilometres northeast of Lahore, where suspected Sunni militants wearing suicide vests burst into prayer halls on Friday and killed 82 worshippers. “In the morning, a man identified as Abid Butt climbed the wall of the house of a local Ahmadiya family and stabbed Naimat Ullah, 55, and his son Mansoor Ahmed,” local police station chief Riaz Sangha said by telephone.
