QUETTA -- Gunmen fatally shot three Shiite Muslims and wounded three others November 10 in a fresh sectarian attack in Quetta, police said.

"Six persons from the Shiite Hazara community were passing from the Jinnah road in a taxicab when they were targeted by two gunmen waiting for them at a traffic signal," Anwar Ali, a senior police official, told AFP.

"Two persons were killed at the spot while one succumbed to his injuries in the hospital. The gunmen fled the crime scene on a motorcycle," he said.
