QUETTA, Pakistan – Unknown assailants have killed nine road construction workers and wounded six others in Pakistan's southwestern Balochistan Province.

The attack on September 13 was near the village of Dasht in the Mastong district about 30 kilometers east of Quetta.

The victims reportedly were all ethnic Pashtuns.

No one has claimed responsibility for the killings.

Ethnic Baluch separatists have been blamed for similar attacks on the past.
