Attackers kill 14 troops in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (AP) -- A security official says gunmen have killed 14 paramilitary soldiers in southwestern Pakistan.

The attack late Wednesday took place close to Quetta in Baluchistan province.

Mohammed Rafiq says the gunmen ambushed the Frontier Corps patrol then fled into the hills.

Baluchistan is home to separatist rebels and Islamist militants, and both routinely attack state forces in the poor, remote region.
