    QUETTA: Security forces early Monday morning
    hemmed in the Mushtar area in Loralai District
    of Pakistan’s insurgency-hit southwestern
    Balochistan after militants ambushed and killed
    at least seven Frontier Corps (FC) personnel at
    a checkpoint, Samaa reported.
    “Paramilitary forces are searching for the
    attackers, who are suspected to be separatist
    Baloch rebels,” FC spokesman told Samaa.
    No one has claimed responsibility for the
    attack as yet.
    Further details are awaited.
    Balochistan, Pakistan's largest but least
    developed and most sparsely populated
    province, is racked by Islamist militants,
    banditry and sectarian violence between
    Sunnis and Shiites.
    In October the Human Rights Commission of
    Pakistan said that more than 300,000 people,
    including minority Shiites and Hindus, had left
    Baluchistan over the past 10 years due to
    rising unrest.
    Pakistani rights group Defence for Human
    Rights says as many as 2,000 people have
    disappeared from across the country, many
    from Baluchistan.
    Rights groups accuse the government of gross
    violations including holding people in secret
    and failing to charge them or put them on
    Pakistan's Supreme Court and high courts
    have also been investigating cases of missing
    people and issuing warnings to the
    government to recover these people.—SAMAA/
