There was night curfew countrywide for last two days following violence targeting Muslims. Police said that 78 suspects in the North Western Province have been arrested and remanded for inciting violence against Muslim minorities in which dozens of shops and houses were damaged. Meanwhile, a defence spokesman has said that an investigation has been launched in a video clip which showed an armed forces personnel helping the rioters carry out the attacks.
