At least four security personnel have been gunned down by militants in two separate incidents in Pakistan, officials said today.
The first incident took place in Karachi's North Nazimabad area this morning where a policeman was killed by some unknown terrorists, a senior official said.
The 28-year-old constable, posted at the New Karachi police station, was on his way to report for his duty when the motorcycle-borne gunmen shot him dead, he said.
In a separate incident yesterday, three paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers were killed when unidentified gunmen opened firing in the country's restive Balochistan province.
The soldiers were patrolling in Quetta when the militants struck, killing them on the spot, officials said.
The terrorists managed to flee.
The area was soon cordoned off and a manhunt launched to nab the culprits.
