Islamabad: Four Shia Muslims were killed by unidentified gunmen in an apparent sectarian attack in Quetta city of southwest Pakistan on Monday, police and local residents said.
    
The gunmen fired indiscriminately at men working in a scrap market on Sarki Road in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province.
    
Four Shia men were killed instantly, local residents and a Shia organisation said.
    
The gunmen, who were riding a motorcycle, escaped before police cordoned off the area and started a search.
    
No group claimed responsibility for the attack though such incidents are usually blamed on the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a notorious sectarian group.
