Gunmen kill 14 after kidnapping them from buses on Pakistani coast

 

Unidentified gunmen killed 14 people in southwestern Pakistan after pulling them from several passenger buses, sifting through their identity cards and kidnapping them, a Pakistani official said on Thursday.

A Baluch insurgent group claimed responsibility in a statement emailed to reporters and newspaper offices.

Fighters of Baloch Raji Aajoi Saangar carried out the killings, said the group, which described itself as an umbrella body of three Baluch separatist movements in the region, but denied that ordinary passengers had been targeted.

“Those who were targeted carried cards of the Pakistan Navy and Coast Guards, and they were only killed after they were identified,” the group’s spokesman, Baluch Khan, said in the statement.
