Four people, including a politician, were killed in an armed attack by unknown assailants on Saturday in Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan.

According to the Saudi Press Agency “SPA”, unidentified gunmen opened fire on the convoy of “Amanullah Zarkzai”, a local tribal leader of the “Balochistan National Party”, which led to his death with his grandson and two of his guards.

Saudi agency added that security forces rushed to the scene and collected evidence, noting that the gunmen who carried out the attack managed to escape from the site, and no one has claimed responsibility so far.

Balochistan National Party leader Sardar Akhtar Mengel condemned the killing of Amanullah Zarkazi, describing it as a cowardly terrorist act.

The Balochistan National Party is one of the parties in the ruling coalition led by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
