Local TV Ajj reported that 14 soldiers have been killed in the shootout so far. There are no official comments on the casualties. Sources said that 11 FC troops were also injured and the bodies and injured have been evacuated in helicopters. The injured were airlifted to a military hospital in Quetta, the provincial capital. TV channels had earlier reported that four FC soldiers had been killed in the clashes. Security sources said that the FC forces have been deployed in the area to guard the huge coal mine resources in the area. They said that militants from Baloch anti-government groups routinely attack the security forces in the region. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Sources said that the insurgents could either belong to Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) or to a new group Baluch United Liberation Army (BULA) which opposes the presence of security forces in Balochistan. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english201..._131260733.htm RIP to the dead.
