Pakistan put the leader of a banned extremist organisation under house arrest on Thursday for inciting sectarian hatred, police said, just days after gunmen killed 29 Shiite Muslims.

Malik Ishaq, head of Lashkar e Jhangvi, was released on bail in July after nearly 14 years behind bars over his alleged role in numerous sectarian murders.

Ishaq is now under house arrest for 10 days in the city of Rahim Yar Khan, 550 kilometres southwest of the capital Islamabad, police said.
