Cnn.svgSix armed militants stormed Pakistan’s Jiwani Airport on Sunday, killing an engineer, a local official said.
The assailants who escaped unharmed also kidnapped another engineer, said Bashir Ahmed, a senior district-level official in Balochistan province.

The attack happened in Pakistan’s southwestern port city of Gwadar, an area in which Baloch insurgents have been operating.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack comes a week after Baloch separatist leader Brahumdagh Bugti said he’s ready to consider talks with Pakistan.
