The Washington Times Daily - - World -

QUETTA | Gun­men killed six peo­ple Thurs­day in a pair of at­tacks in south­west­ern Pak­istan, one of which tar­geted lo­cal em­ploy­ees of a U.N. agency, of­fi­cials said.

The as­sailants opened fire on the staff of the U.N. Food and Agri­cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion as they were rid­ing in a car through Baluchis­tan prov­ince’s Mas­tung dis­trict, killing two peo­ple, po­lice of­fi­cer Rus­tam Khan said.

A mem­ber of the group’s project staff and a hired driver were the two peo­ple killed, a U.N. of­fi­cial said on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause he was not au­tho­rized to talk to the me­dia. An­other staff mem­ber was wounded, he said.

There was no im­me­di­ate claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack.
