Unidentified gunmen shot dead two military officers in Pakistan's northwest, according to media reports on Sunday.
Police sources were quoted as saying that some armed men opened indiscriminate fire late Saturday night on military intelligence officer Aftab Alam and military transport battalion official Ameer Hamza in front of their homes in the military area at Nowshera, a garrison city some 100 km northwest of Islamabad.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but militants regularly target intelligence officials and security men.
Both officials died at the scene, police said. The gunmen escaped in their car despite tight security in the area.
