Thousands of pilgrims left stranded at Pak-Iran border

 

 

Around 3,000 pilgrims are stranded for the last three days at the Iran-Pakistan border due to lack of security needed to escort their buses to Quetta.

Pilgrims returning from Iran and Iraq are usually escorted by security forces due to past attacks and existing threats by sectarian outfits on buses carrying pilgrims.

Majority of those stranded include women and children, with around 1,200 men amongst them.

The pilgrims were returning home from Iraq, where they had gone to commemorate Ashura.
