United State: Human rights groups are calling for a UN fact-finding mission to Pakistan following the discovery of multiple mass graves in Balochistan province this past weekend. Pakistan’s army has been accused of atrocities bordering on genocide, with thousands of Baloch, including scores of independence activists, being “disappeared” in recent years.

In the latest grim chapter of the seemingly ceaseless violence scarring Pakistan’s vast Balochistan province, the bullet-riddled bodies of three migrant workers who had been kidnapped were found near the port city of Gwadar on Thursday. According to a report in Dawn, an English-language Pakistani daily newspaper, unknown gunmen abducted the laborers on Wednesday night at a stone-crushing plant in the town of Sansar, about 45 miles north of Gwadar. A fourth man, believed to be the plant’s owner, was also abducted, but his fate is unclear.

“He was shot dead,” explains Muatasim Qazi, floating his cursor over the face of a man in a white tunic.
