Karachi, Jul 15 (PTI) Two Pakistani soldiers, including a captain, were killed in a terrorist attack in the restive south-western province of Balochistan on Thursday, officials said.

In the end of June, five Frontier Corps soldiers were gunned down by terrorists in Sibi district's Sangan area. Earlier in June, four soldiers, including a junior commissioned officer, were killed in a bomb blast on the Margat-Quetta road in the province. PTI CORR IND AKJ IND
