QUETTA, 5 September: Three soldiers, including a Colonel, were martyred while three others sustained injuries in an attack by militants on a convoy of Frontier Corps (FC) in Balochistan on Monday.

Lieutenant Colonel Aamir Waheed, Lance Naik Masood and Sepoy Irfan lost their lives in the attack, while Lieutenant Colonel Shajeeullah and a havildar and a sepoy sustained injuries.
