Police said gunmen have killed six people in a pair of attacks in southwest Pakistan, one of which targeted local U.N. employees.

Police officer Rustam Khan said gunmen attacked a car carrying local staff of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Baluchistan province’s Mastung district Thursday, killing two people.

A U.N. official said the two killed were a driver and a member of the group’s project staff. Another member was wounded.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

Police officer Shaukat Khan said gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on a passenger van in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, killing four Shia Muslims in an apparent sectarian attack.
