Four Shiites shot dead in SW Pakistan: Police
Gunmen ambushed a car and killed four family members from the Shiite Muslim minority in a sectarian attack in southwest Pakistan yesterday, police said. The men sprayed bullets at the vehicle of the Hazara Shiite family travelling to Karachi as they passed through Choto, a town some 40 kilometers south of the Balochistan provincial capital Quetta. “Four people of a family, including a woman, were killed and another man wounded when gunmen fired with automatic weapons on their car as it slowed down on a speed bump,” local police station chief Abdul Qudoos said. “It is a sectarian killing as the family had no enemy,” Qudoos said.
