QUETTA: Six Pakistanis were killed on Tuesday during clashes with the Taliban militants near the Pak-Afghan border in Balochistan’s Chagai district.

“Six Pakistani nationals were killed near the Pak-Afghan border,” Balochistan Levies Captain Tariq Zehri said.

The six men were reportedly dacoits who had earlier been kidnapped by the Taliban from Pakistan. However, it is yet to be ascertained by the Levies officials if they were dacoits.
