Pakistan is bracing for further protests at the funeral of the former bodyguard who killed Punjab's governor, in a case that shocked the country.
Authorities have deployed heavy security in Rawalpindi where thousands are expected to mourn Mumtaz Qadri.
Qadri was hailed as a hero by Islamists after killing Salman Taseer in 2011 over his opposition to blasphemy laws.
His execution on Monday prompted thousands of protesters to take to the streets across Pakistan.
Qadri's supporters staged mostly peaceful rallies in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and also blocked highways into Islamabad. Demonstrators had burned tyres and chanted slogans.
