Paramilitary base rocketted in Kohlu
QUETTA: Suspected tribal assailants fired four rockets and assault rifles at a paramilitary base in Kohlu, a tribal town east of Quetta, on Thursday damaging walls and shattering windows, an official said.
No one was hurt in the dawn attack, said Lt Col Rizwan Malik, a spokesman for the Frontier Constabulary troops.
Several perimeter walls were damaged in the volley of rocket fire. The assailants then opened fired with assault rifles and machine-guns, sending a hail of bullets smashing into office windows and walls inside the base, Col Malik said.
The troops returned fire, but it was not known whether there were any casualties among the attackers, who fled into the mountains, he added. ap
