Three Labourers Working on China ‘Silk Road’ Project Killed in Turbat

Suspected militants on Friday gunned down three workers building a Chinese-funded "Silk Road" highway in Balochistan, just days after a similar attack killed 10 labourers, officials said.

The men killed on Friday were part of a team working on a major highway in the Hoshab area of Turbat, linking the port-city of Gwadar to Quetta, said Sarmad Saleem, a regional official.

"One laborer died on the spot and two others succumbed to their injuries in hospital," Saleem said.

They were making a trip to a marketplace in the small town of Hoshab, 280 km from Gwadar, to buy daily supplies, said an official of the paramilitary force overseeing security in Baluchistan.
