QUETTA: A security official says gunmen have attacked a camp for road construction workers in an area of Balochistan where rebels are active, killing 11 people.

Azittalah said the attack late Monday took place close to the port town of Gwadar.

Azittalah, who heads a tribal security force, says four attackers hit the camp before fleeing on motorbikes.

Azittalah, who goes by a single name, did not identify the victims, though many laborers in Balochistan are settlers.
