    Attackers kill 10 coast guard personnel in Gwadar.
    Last Updated On 27 July,2013 About 4 hours ago Save The attack took place at 7:00am near Pak-Iran border.


    QUETTA (Dunya News) – At least 10 coast guard personnel were killed and five others injured when militants attacked a check post in Gawadar district of the restive Balochistan province.

    The check post of coastguards was located in Sansar area, a mountainous region some 100 kilometers away from Gwadar, the port city in Balochistan.

    Heavy contingent of security officials and rescue teams were sent to the remote area, an official said.

    According to sources, more than ten militants swooped in cars and motorcycles, using heavy weapons, including rockets, during the attack. A total of 14 security personnel were present at the check post.

    The militants sped away after the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

    A contingent of law enforcement personnel was sent to the area to launch a search operation but no arrest were made so far.

    A year ago, militants had killed more than 10 coast guard personnel in a similar attack near Gwadar.

    Balochistan suffers from both terrorism and a regional insurgency which began in 2004, with rebels demanding political autonomy and a greater share of profits from the region s natural resources.

    Now this is bad news for China and Pakistan.

    If China is to make Gwadar its hub for the oil, railway and road connect with Xinjang, then it will be one running battle since too much of the infrastructure traverses Balochistan!

    Taller than mountain and sweeter than honey Chinese brothers don't mind. They will pour 25 billion dollars and quickly build a highway, railway, motorway, amway and "different race" people and "state of mind" Pakistan will rule over the world.

    More seriously I blame RAW, Afghans, CIA. Mossad and Modi for this
