En militant gruppe, Jundullah, stormet et fjerntliggende hotell i den pakistansk-kontrollerte del av Kashmir og drepte de ni utenlandske fjellklatrerne som var innlosjert der.

Initial reports say five are from Ukraine, one from Russia and three from China. A Pakistani is also said to have been shot.

The attack happened near the base camp of Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth highest mountain, in Gilgit-Baltistan.

It is the first such attack on tourists in the region. A Sunni militant group, Jundullah, said it was responsible.

..

Reports say those killed in the attack were nine trekkers and their Pakistani guide.

One person survived the attack.

Correspondents say Gilgit-Baltistan, which borders China, had been considered one of the more secure areas under Pakistani control.

However, in recent years it has suffered a spate of attacks by militants targeting Pakistan’s Shia Muslim minority.

 

Angrepet føyer seg inn i rekken av blodige, vanvittige angrep mot sivile mål som jihadist-grupper har gjennomført den siste tiden. Et forferdelig angrep fant sted i Baluchistan nylig. Først mot en buss med kvinnelige studenter, og dernest mot sykehuset hvor de sårede og drepte var blitt ført. Angriperne la for dagen en utspekulert grusomhet.
