The Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) has held a protest rally on Saturday, September 11 in Hanover, Germany. The people protested against killing the victims of enforced disappearances in "fake encounters" in occupied Balochistan, according to ANI. The Free Balochistan Movement has alleged that the "fake encounters" have been carried out by "Counter-Terrorism Department" (CTD) of Pakistani forces in Balochistan.

As per the Free Balochistan Movement press release, the protest began at 2:00 pm(local time) in front of the Hannover Central Station in Germany. During the protest, the people participating in the rally held banners and placards with slogans against torture, human rights abuses and illegal occupation of Balochistan by Pakistan and Iran. In addition, the protesters had also brought pictures of disappeared people who were killed in "staged encounters by the CTD". The Free Balochistan Movement has shared the pictures of the protest held in Hanover, Germany on its Twitter handle.

Protesters while shouting slogans marched through numerous streets to George Platz. People were also given pamphlets by the demonstrators to raise awareness about the crimes committed against the people of Balochistan. Several Baloch people addressed the protesters, exposing Pakistani and Iranian atrocities in occupied Balochistan. The speakers while addressing the people alleged that Pakistan was following its earlier policy of "kill and dump", by forcibly disappearing Baloch, killing the disappeared Baloch and burying them in graves.

Furthermore, the speakers have alleged that the Pakistan state forces have adopted a new policy under which the "victims of enforced disappearances are fake encounters". Reportedly, the speakers have raised the issue of over 20 fake encounters being reported in a single month. The FBM in its statement said, "Pakistan is trying to give the impression to the world that it is taking action against the terrorists by killing the Baloch in its custody in the name of encounters by its terrorist force CTD." Furthermore, they alleged that people killed in CTD encounters were abducted and then killed in "staged encounters" to cover up the crimes they commit against people in Balochistan.

A ‘European Silk Road’

In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
