Gunmen kill 6 people, 1 a U.N. worker
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.
