A girl from the Shi'ite Hazara community gestures as she attends a funeral ceremony of the victims who were killed three days ago by a bomb blast in Quetta January 14, 2013. Shi'ite Muslims agreed on Monday to begin burying nearly 100 of their people killed in one of Pakistan's deadliest sectarian attacks after Pakistan's Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said he would comply with their demands to sack the local government.
