QUETTA: At least three Frontier Corps (FC) soldiers were killed and four other personnel were wounded on Friday after their convoy was ambushed by armed militants in Gwadar.

The convoy was attacked by militants, who were armed with rocket propelled grenades and automatic weapons, when it was on its way to Suntsar from the Zahiran check-post. A vehicle of the FC was destroyed in the attack.

The attackers managed to escape from the scene after carrying out the attack. And more troops reached the site and transported the dead and injured to a hospital.

There have been no claims of responsibility for the attack, which took place in the B-area where the Balochistan Levies are responsible for maintaining law and order, along with the FC who are also deputed.

Gwadar is one of the worst militancy-hit areas in Balochistan where Baloch militants often target security forces.

Enough is enough. I know what Modi is trying to do but its not going to work on Pakistan. He should know the fact that there is not much for Pakistan to lose.

@abreez: Really. I thought this war is "American war on Terror" and Pakistan has been dragged into it. When will we wake up and say enough is enough and come out of this war?
