At least 14 people have been shot dead after gunmen hijacked a passenger bus in southwestern Pakistan.

The motive behind the killings is not yet known.

According to reports, the gunmen selectively killed passengers after checking their identity cards.  

The passenger bus was travelling from Karachi to Gawadar early Thursday when the incident occurred. 

No group has claimed responsibility for the killings but Baluchi separatists often target security forces and people from Punjab.
