QUETTA — Militants destroyed a historic house associated with Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah and shot dead a guard on Saturday.
Police said attackers on motorcycles planted bombs at the 19th century residence in the mountain resort town of Ziarat in Baluchistan province, a hotbed of ethnic nationalism.
Jinnah lived in the house before his death in 1948, a year after he led Pakistan to independence. He is also referred to as Quaid-e-Azam, which means "great leader."
