QUETTA, Pakistan, July 12 (UPI) -- Police in Quetta, Pakistan, said Thursday they found the bodies of seven miners kidnapped last week in the Marwar region of the Balochistan province.

The men had been kidnapped Saturday, the Press Trust of India reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for the deaths of men -- identified as Deen Mohammad, Ahmedullah, Kashir Kha, Khan Mohammad, Mohammad Nawaz, Abdul Ahmed and Mohammad Akbar -- though police said the incident was one of a string of attacks on non-Baloch people in the province in recent weeks.

All seven had worked as coalminers for United Mineral Company in the Sorange coal mines, Geo News reported.
