Kuwait Times - - International -

QUETTA: Pak­istani Tale­ban mil­i­tants shot dead four para­mil­i­tary sol­diers in Pak­istan’s western city of Quetta, where last month seven se­cu­rity men were killed in a sui­cide at­tack, po­lice and the Is­lamist group said. The Fron­tier Corps troop­ers were pa­trolling the res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood of Lan­goabad on mo­tor­cy­cles when they were fired on by gun­men also rid­ing bikes, said Nasee­bul­lah Khan, Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent of Po­lice for Quetta. “The four men were shot in the head,” Khan told Reuters, adding that hand­guns were used in the at­tack. Tehrik-i-Tale­ban Pak­istan (TTP) claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack. Quetta is the cap­i­tal of Baluchis­tan prov­ince, rich in re­sources and at the heart of $58 bil­lion China-Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor (CPEC) stretch­ing from the Ara­bian Sea to China’s Xin­jiang re­gion.
