ABSTRACT
Reports on the hunger strike staged by Karachi, Pakistan physicians in protest of the targeted killing of fellow physicians in Karachi and elsewhere in Pakistan. Call for a countrywide strike on April 8, 2002 by the Pakistan Medical Association; Notion that the attacks on doctors may be part of a campaign being waged by religious extremists, mostly belonging to the mainstream Sunni sect, to wreak revenge on Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf for cracking down on militant Muslim groups.
