Gunmen have attacked a five-star hotel in Gwadar in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province, Euronews reports.

One guard was killed outside the Pearl Continental Hotel in the port city, the military said in a statement.

One official told Reuters that most guests had been evacuated but the attackers appeared to have reached the first floor of the hotel.

In a statement emailed to the media, the Balochistan Liberation Army said it carried out the attack.

It is one of a number of groups fighting for Baluchistan, which wants greater autonomy.
