    QUETTA, Pakistan Gunmen stormed a Pakistani police training academy in the southwestern city of Quetta late on Monday night, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 100, officials said.

    Some 200 trainees are stationed at the facility, officials said, and some had been taken hostage.

    Mir Sarfaraz Bugti, home minister of Baluchistan province, of which Quetta is the capital, confirmed early on Tuesday that five to six gunmen had attacked a dormitory inside the training facility while cadets rested and slept.

    "So far there are at least twenty dead and over a one hundred injured," Bugti told media. "Among the injured is an army captain."
