Firing kills four police personnel in SW Pakistan

According to police sources, a group of police personnel was on routine patrol when unidentified gunmen riding a motorcycle fired on the vehicle in the central city of Balochistan province.

Over a dozen policemen were injured in the attack on the vehicle.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

On July 10, a senior police officer was killed in a terrorist attack after a suicide bomber targeted his convoy in Chaman area of Balochistan province of Pakistan.

Mineral-rich Balochistan has been plagued for decades by a separatist insurgency and sectarian killings. Taliban and other extremist militants also operate in the province.
