Baku, May 13, AZERTAC 

Gunmen shot dead 10 laborers and injured two others who were working on a road project linked to the multi-billion-dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in southwestern Pakistan’s Balochistan province on Saturday, according to a provincial minister, according to Anadolu Agency.

The latest attack coincides with the signing of several agreements aimed at boosting cooperation in different sectors between Pakistan and China on the sidelines of the Road and Belt Forum currently being held in the Chinese capital, Beijing, on Saturday.

Balochistan Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti told reporters that a group of gunmen on motorcycles had opened fire on the workers at a construction site on the outskirts of Gawadar city, killing eight of them on the spot while another two succumbed to their wounds at a nearby hospital.
