Zainab Ansari's body was found in a rubbish dump several days after she went missing. She had been raped and strangled

Seven-year-old Zainab Ansari disappeared while walking to a religion class near her home.

Two protesters were killed on Wednesday after an angry crowd tried to storm the local police headquarters, and police opened fire. She had been raped and strangled.

Pakistani students light candles during a protest rally to condemn the rape and killing of Zainab Ansari, an 8-year-old girl, last week in Kasur, Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, in Lahore, Pakistan.

'I have nothing else to talk about today, except Zainab, ' she said at the end of a almost two-minute-long clip.

The murder has caused outrage in Pakistan, and violent mass protests have been shaking Kasur, located in Punjab province, for two days.

A local police spokesman told AFP news agency "up to 1,000" people had taken to the streets.

They say five of them are linked to one suspect who is being hunted by hundreds of officers. The outrage has spilled over in Kasur after the body of a child was found in a garbage heap Tuesday, where she is believed to have been dumped after being raped and murdered.

They also called out the incompetence of the police at handling child abduction cases in the region.

Zainab's father, Ameen Ansari, told the BBC that he did not agree with the violence of protesters, but understood the anger at police.

Zainab went missing January 4, as she was heading to a class at a religious school near her home.

'Police are not cooperating with us, ' Ghulam Rasool, an uncle of Zainab, said on Thursday.

Ihtisham ul Haq, summed up many people's exasperation at a lack of progress in finding the killer. "We do not want such an inadequate system".

Firebrand cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri who took part in the girl's funeral service demanded the local government be replaced, saying it has "no right to remain in power after the killing of Zainab Ansari".

Pakistanis expressed their shock on social media using the hashtag "justiceforZainab".

Following a meeting with Zainab's father Anees, Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif sacked Kasur's police chief for negligence. The provincial government has announced a Rs 10-million (approximately Rs 57.4 lakh) award for information leading to the arrest of the accused.
