Pakistan hanged two sectarian militants on Tuesday for the murder of a Shiite Muslim doctor in Karachi, officials said, the latest executions since the government ended a moratorium on the death penalty.A total of 22 people have now been executed since the government brought back hangings in terror cases amid public outrage over a Taliban massacre at a school that left 150 people dead.Pakistan has suffered a rising tide of sectarian violence in recent years, most of it perpetrated by hardline Sunni Muslim groups such as LeJ against minority Shiites, who make up around 20 percent of the population.Around 1,000 Shiites have been killed in the past two years in Pakistan, with many of the attacks claimed by LeJ.
