"It is true that a child's corpse is the heaviest".

"Two protesters have been killed and three others injured, the situation is still tense", he said.

A local police spokesman told AFP news agency "up to 1,000" people had taken to the streets.

Pakistanis expressed their shock on social media using the hashtag "justiceforZainab". They are demanding justice in the case and to award exemplary punishment to the culprit so that such incidents can be avoided in the future.

'This is not the first time such horrific acts have happened. What is missing from the discussion is the larger issue of child protection in Pakistan.
