Six people were killed and four others injured when unidentified assailants stormed a house in Dera Bugti's Toba Nokani area and opened indiscriminate fire, Levies sources said.

The armed men stormed into the home of a man identified as Gujjar, killing his two wives and three children, Levies sources said.

As the injured were being transferred to a hospital, their vehicle hit a landmine. One person was killed in the ensuing explosion, Levies sources added.
