Four Labour Party leaders killed

Monday 14 December 2009, by Farooq Tariq

Four LPP leaders died in a road accident yesterday in Baluchistan. They were coming back after meetings to organise home-based women workers. Three of them are shown in this photograph, taken at Khanis Pur Murree last year during a socialist school.

Three of the four comrades

LPP general secretary Farooq Tariq said: "We have lost some our best comrades".

International Viewpoint joins socialists around the world in expressing its shock at the loss of people who played such a powerful role in the progressive struggle in Baluchistan, where every socialist activist makes a huge difference. We send our heartfelt condolences to our brothers and sisters in the LPP, and to the dead socialists’ families and friends.
