In the latest attack on minority communities in Pakistan, 11 coal miners were abducted and shot dead by terrorists in Balochistan province on Sunday. Pakistani officials believe that the miners, all of whom hailed from the Shia Hazara community, were targeted because of their faith.

The coal miners were abducted by armed terrorists in Balochistan's Machh area while on their way to work. Soon after, they were shot dead from close range. While six of the miners died on the spot, the other five succumbed on their way to a nearby hospital.

The victims were paraded before they were executed, news agency PTI quoted an official of the Balochistan Levies as saying.

Condemning the killings, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said he has directed the country's Frontier Corps (FC) to apprehend the killers. "The families of the victims will not be left abandoned by the govt," he said in a tweet.

This is not the first time members of the Shia Hazara community have been targeted by Sunni militants in Quetta or other parts of Balochistan. In 2019, a suicide bomb attack in a marketplace in a Hazara housing society killed at least 21 people. Terror outfits ISIS and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi later claimed responsibility for the attack.

Responding to questions, Quetta Deputy Commissioner Murad Kaas said on Sunday that no outfit has claimed responsibility for the execution of the 11 coal miners from the Shia Hazara community as of yet. "Those who targeted these innocent coal miners do not deserve any concessions," Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan said

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
