Thousands of demonstrators shouting "Blood for blood!" rampaged through the streets of Lahore, Pakistan, battling police, burning vehicles and smashing shop windows. Witnesses said 12 people were injured and at least 40 arrested during the riot by opposition supporters who charged the government with failure to investigate the assassination of Muslim fundamentalist leader Allama Ihsan Elahi Zaheer of the opposition Ahle Hadith Party. Zaheer died Monday from wounds suffered in a March 23 bomb blast at a rally he was addressing.
