Islamabad: Four persons were shot and burnt to death in the restive Balochistan province of southwest Pakistan on Saturday, security officials said.

The incident occurred at Tump, a border town in Turbat district, officials of the Levies militia said.

"Unidentified armed men riding motorcycles opened fire from three sides on a car in which four persons were travelling," a Levies official told the media.

The armed men later set the car on fire.
