Public Relations official, two policemen shot dead in Quetta

By: AFP | December 17, 2012

Gunmen riding a motorbike shot dead a government official and two police officers in Quetta on Monday, police said.

"The assailants shot dead Khadim Hussain Noori, director of the public relations department of Baluchistan provincial government," city police chief Wali Khan Nasir told AFP.

Noori had been parking his car when he was shot, he added.

The 56-year-old civil servant was a member of the Shia community. "It appears to be a sectarian attack, the target was Noori," Nasir said.

The two gunmen then killed two police officials who pursued them after the attack on Noori, and managed to escape, he added.
