Four Pakistan policemen were killed on Tuesday in a gunbattle with terrorists in the country's Balochistan province.

The killings come just hours after four people died in a bomb blast in the region's capital, Quetta.

Terrorists identified by police as being from the Pakistan Taliban opened fire on a predawn patrol in Kuchlak and were still on the run.

Senior police official Muhammad Zohaib told AFP; "Militants opened fire on a police team from a compound killing four policemen.

"One terrorist was also killed during the exchange of fire, while the remainder escaped."

Pakistan has been battling a yearslong terrorist insurgency in Balochistan.

On Monday four people were also killed by a motorcycle bomb in a busy market of Balochistan's capital, Quetta.
