Eleven Killed in Pakistan Violence

  • VOA News

A series of attacks in Pakistan's troubled Baluchistan province has left 10 people dead, as thousands of ethnic Baluch activists rallied in Quetta to demand an end to military operations.

Local authorities say the first blast hit a state-run dairy farm in the town of Kohlu early Sunday, killing three people and wounding 16. Hours later, a bomb explosion at a gas exploration site southeast of Quetta killed six security personnel guarding the facility. Four others were wounded.

Elsewhere, a tractor hit a land mine on a dirt road, killing the driver. In the South Waziristan tribal region, local authorities found the bullet-riddled body of Muslim cleric Zahir Shah who was kidnapped last week. The cleric's killers left a note which said he was killed because of his links with Americans.
