Heavily armed militants on Sunday attacked an airport and its radar system in Pakistan’s troubled Balochistan province, killing one aviation engineer while kidnapping the manager of the airport. A group of around 12 motorbike-borne militants launched a pre-dawn attack on the Jiwani airport in Gwadar district, some 980 kilometers from Quetta and the site of Pakistan’s upcoming port-city where China has made huge investments. Police said that an aviation engineer was killed and another engineer was injured in the attack while the militants also kidnapped Mehmood Niazi, the manager of the airport.
