Iranians stage nationwide rallies to protest a recent wave of Shia killings in Pakistan.

Thousands of theology students have rallied in several cities, including Qom, Tabriz and Mashahad, chanting slogans against certain countries that stir sectarian violence in Pakistan.

They have also called on Pakistani Shia and Sunni Muslims to remain united against enemy plots seeking to pit them against each other.

According to the Human Rights Watch, more than 400 Shias were killed in a chain of attacks in Pakistan in 2012.

In the latest incident, over 40 Shia Muslims died in a bombing in the southern port city of Karachi last week.
