Traffic collision kills 7 police officers in Pakistan’s SW


ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani police say a traffic collision in the southwest killed seven officers as they were returning to their hometowns for the Eid holidays. The policemen died at the scene of the crash on a national highway in the Khuzdar area of Baluchistan province on Saturday night. In a separate incident, an intense shootout during a raid in Pakistan’s northwest killed two soldiers and eight militants, according to the army. The country is seeing a rise in militant attacks since the end of a cease-fire last November between the banned group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and the government.
