Killers spark a hotel siege

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

ARMED mil­i­tary last night had three at­tack­ers sur­rounded after they shot dead a hotel guard.

The gun­men who stormed the hotel were holed-up in a stair­case as heli­copters flew over­head.

They ap­peared to have reached the first floor of the hotel in Gwadar, a port in south west Pak­istan.

Most of the guests had been evac­u­ated from the five-star Pearl Con­ti­nen­tal Hotel and there were no other re­ports of ca­su­al­ties.

Sev­eral mil­i­tant groups op­er­ate in the area and the Baloch Lib­er­a­tion Army, fight­ing for in­de­pen­dence, claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack, said a re­port.
