Four members of a Pakistani Christian family have been shot dead in a targeted attack in Quetta.
Four others were killed in separate incidents of violence in the provincial capital of Balochistan.

On Monday the attackers on a motorbike opened fire on the Christians who were passengers in a rickshaw on the Shah Zaman Road.

A woman was among the family killed in the shooting and a minor girl was also injured.

Emergency services attended the scene and the dead were taken to Civil Hospital Quetta.

No group has claimed the responsibility for the attack yet.

Earlier on Monday, at least four people were killed in a clash between two groups on Quetta’s Qambrani Road.

According to reports, a van travelling from the Khajoori area of Machh to Quetta was intercepted by two parties who argued before a shootout ensued.

It is thought the incident is a result of tribal enmity.
