Four of them were abducted on June 12 allegedly by the security forces in Kech district of Balochistan, whereas another went missing on June 11.
According to sources, Pakistani forces arrested and took away four Baloch youngsters on June 12 to an undisclosed location, after a raid in Kech district. The abductees have been identified as Abdullah, Sohrab, Guharam, and Sattar.
In another incident, a Baloch man identified as Dawood Lateef was allegedly abducted by the Frontier Corps (FC) during a raid in Aabsur, Turbat city on June 11.
In the month of June itself, cases of 'enforced disappearances' have seen a rapid rise in Balochistan. On June 11, three persons were reportedly "abducted". The victims were identified as Sameer Murad and Rustam Hassan of Kech district and Waseem, son of Shareef of Khuzdar.

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
