Terrorists in twin attacks killed four troops in Pakistan

 Affected Countries: pakistan;

Pakistan’s military says suspected militants have attacked a security post and hours later targeted a vehicle carrying troops in the country’s southwest, killing four soldiers and four insurgents.

The military says Monday’s first incident occurred when militants attacked a security post in the city of Quetta, killing four soldiers and wounding six others.

Troops returned fire, killing at least four insurgents. In the second attack, militants set off a roadside bomb aimed at a security vehicle, wounding two soldiers in Baluchistan province.

Secessionist groups in Baluchistan have staged a long-running insurgency to push for independence from the central government in Islamabad. The Pakistani Taliban and the Islamic State extremist group also have presences there.
