Despite criticism, festival opens at Pakistan...

Spotlights are installed at the ruins of Mohenjodaro, listed on UNESCO's list of world heritage sites, in preparation of a grand cultural festival, near Larkana, some 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the Pakistani port city of Karachi, Pakistan, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. The event at Mohenjodaro, whose unbaked brick ruins date to the 3rd millennium BC, has however drawn criticism from some archaeologists who say it poses a risk to the monuments. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the son of assassinated Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, organized the Festival aimed at promoting peace in this Islamic nation, where militant violence has killed over 40,000 people in recent years, organizers said.
