4 FC personnel killed in attack in Pakistan

Press Trust of India  |  Peshawar 

At least four paramilitary soldiers were killed today when unidentified gunmen attacked their vehicle in Pakistan's southwestern province, police said.

The (FC) personnel were targeted in Quetta when they were on a routine patrol.

(DIG) Quetta Razzaq Cheema said that the attackers fired at the vehicle carrying the FC officials and fled after the incident.

"Four security personnel were killed in the attack," Cheema said.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack but Baloch nationalists and militants often target security men in the province.

At least seven persons were killed on Zarghoon Road in Quetta last month when a suicide bomber rammed his motorbike into a police truck.

Governor condemned that the latest attack and urged the law enforcement agencies to arrest the culprits at the earliest.
