Pakistani police have placed a prominent Islamist militant under temporary house arrest after accusing him of trying to incite sectarian hatred.
Officials said Thursday Malik Ishaq, the head of the banned Sunni Muslim extremist group Laskhar-e-Jhangvi, was ordered to remain at home for 10 days in the central city of Rahim Yar Khan. Police accuse Ishaq of making public sermons in recent months promoting violence against minority Shi'ite Muslims.
