Gunmen Kill 14 Pakistani Soldiers

Pakistan's military says gunmen killed 14 soldiers in an ambush in southwestern Pakistan today.

The military said the gunmen attacked a convoy of the paramilitary Frontier Corps traveling in Baluchistan Province, killing the soldiers.

Another 10 soldiers were wounded in the attack.

A Baluchi militant group, the Baluchistan Liberation Army, claimed responsibility for the attack.

A spokesman for the group said 40 soldiers were killed.

Baluchi militants have been waging an insurgency against the government for decades, demanding greater independence and a larger share of the province's natural resources.
