A large group of gunmen attacked a work camp near the construction site in the Gobdan area of district Turbat, overpowered eight security guards and shot sleeping labourers before fleeing, Makran division commissioner Pasand Khan Buledi said .

The commissioner said 16 of the dead were from the Punjab province and four from Sindh province. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Baluchistan is the scene of a low-intensity violence by nationalist and separatist Baluch groups who want a substantial share of revenue from gas and mineral resources and complete autonomy from Islamabad.
