CORRECTION: This story has been revised to give the correct number of girls who have been attacked and killed in Kasur, in eastern Pakistan.

Two protesters were killed on Wednesday after an angry crowd tried to storm the local police headquarters, and police opened fire.The Punjab government is offering a 10m rupee ($90,000; £67,000) reward for anyone who helps police find and arrest Zainab's killer, and has offered 3m rupees each to the families of those killed by police on Wednesday, the BBC was told.

Demonstrations were held in all cities between Faisalabad in the northeast down to Pakistan's southern metropolis of Karachi.

Zainab Ansari, 8, went missing last week while heading to a nearby home for religious studies. He said it could not be ruled out that the murders involved a serial killer. "In the previous incidents, the forensic evidence also determines it and the modus operandi of carrying out such acts also determines it", spokesperson of Punjab province - where Kasur is located - Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan told reporters.

Four people have been caught in connection with the previous 11 cases and several suspects are now in police custody, he said, adding that their identities can not yet be revealed.
