QUETTA, Pakistan — Pakistani police say gunmen have ambushed a navy vehicle, killing two navy men and wounding three others in the southwestern coastal town of Jiwani.

Police official Abdul Hakim says the attackers opened fire on the vehicle late Monday before fleeing the scene.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the attack in Baluchistan province. The province, which borders Iran and Afghanistan, is home to a low-level separatist insurgency and has also seen attacks by Islamic extremists.

No one immediately claimed Monday’s attack.
