Gunmen opened fire Monday on a taxi in Pakistan's southwestern city of Quetta, gripped by a wave of sectarian bloodshed, killing two people from the minority Shiite community, police said.
The attack came on the busy Iqbal avenue in Quetta, the capital of insurgency-hit Baluchistan province, where a recent surge in sectarian unrest has killed scores of Shiites.
"The driver and a passenger boarding taxi cab, both were Shiite. They died after unknown gunmen fired at their car," Fayyaz Sumbal, a senior police official in Quetta told AFP.
