"On Saturday night gunmen reportedly posing as police killed ten people at the Nanga Parbat base camp in the Gilgit-Baltistan area of Pakistan. Nine tourists from China, the Ukraine and Lithuania died in the attack, along with one guide who's nationality has been variously described as Pakistani or Nepali. One Chinese survivor has been recovered. The attack is thought to have been carried out by Sunni militants, though reports vary as to the name of the group responsible. The Pakistani Taliban have contacted the BBC to claim responsibility. It's also been claimed that the victims were robbed before being shot." We will update you as we get more information.
