Pakistan: Authorities must protect and respect human rights in bringing an end to violent confrontation

Amnesty International is deeply concerned at risk to life caused by the escalating violence between Pakistani security forces and seminary (madrassa) students affiliated to the Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) in Islamabad which has so far claimed the lives of at least 19 people, including a photojournalist, a paramilitary ranger, four students and several by-standers. More than 150 people have reportedly been injured, some critically with multiple bullet wounds.
