Attackers Kill Seven Shi'ite Pilgrims In SW Pakistan

Pakistani police say unidentified attackers opened fire on a bus terminal in southwestern Pakistan, killing seven Shi'ite pilgrims waiting to travel to neighboring Iran.

The seven men were killed as they waited for a bus in a neighborhood of Quetta, the capital of oil- and gas- rich Baluchistan province, which borders Iran and Afghanistan.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the killings.

Baluchistan is home to a separatist movement that wants more money derived from the province's natural resources.
