At least 11 people have been killed in two separate attacks by militants in Noshki district of Pakistan’s Balochistan province, near the border with Afghanistan.

According to a report by Pakistan’s “GEO’ channel, in the first attack, a passenger bus heading from Quetta to Taftan was intercepted, where the attackers checked the passengers’ documents and kidnapped 9 of them.

Subsequently, the bodies of the abductees bearing signs of gunfire were found near the site of the abduction, and all the victims were workers from Pakistan’s Punjab province.

In the second attack, unknown assailants began checking cars on the N-40 highway and opened fire on a car that refused to stop, killing two people, and injuring 3 others.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif sent his condolences to the families of the victims, vowing to punish the perpetrators of the attacks and their aides.
