QUETTA, Pakistan — Gunmen opened fire on Pakistani police escorting a Spanish cyclist through a volatile province bordering Iran today, killing six officers and wounding the Spaniard, said officials.

The attack on the cyclist, who had just arrived from Iran and whose blog said he was trying to cycle around the world, came one day after militants in the same region killed 28 people in a bus convoy of Shiite Muslim pilgrims. One police officer said authorities suspected the same group carried out both attacks.
