Unidentified gunmen have shot dead four policemen in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, officials said on Sunday.

The gunmen opened fire on the duty officers late Saturday in a village in Kohat district. “Gunmen opened fire on their official vehicle from both sides of the road, all the four policemen died on the spot,” Javed Iqbal, a district police officer in Kohat, told AFP.

A second police official in Kohat said the attackers fled during the darkness.

No group has yet claimed responsibility.

Violence across Pakistan has declined in recent years following a series of military offensives against insurgents in the northwestern border areas. But the remnants of militant groups are still able to carry out periodic bloody attacks, particularly in the northwest.
