New York : A group of Baloch activists has held protests against Pakistan outside the UN headquarters here, demanding freedom and highlighting Pakistan’s crimes against humanity in Balochistan. The protest was organised by the Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) yesterday across the street from the world body’s headquarters, around the time the 71st session of the General Assembly opened in the UN.

  Waving the US and Baloch flags, the small group of protesters held banners of ‘Stop Human Rights violation in Baluchistan’, ‘Stop Bombing Balochistan’ and ‘Balochistan is not Pakistan’ and stood around five dolls, smeared in red colour to portray blood and placed on the ground on a white banner that read ‘Save Baloch Children’. Some wore white T-shirts with the slogan ‘Dire Human Rights Violations in Balochistan’ written in black.
