India condemns terror attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi

At least 2 police official martyred outside Chinese consulate in Karachi       	         		Posted

Four people were killed when gunmen armed with hand grenades and a suicide vest stormed the Chinese consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi, officials said, with the attack claimed by terrorists.

Meanwhile, China has condemned an attack on its consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi that killed two policemen. Police said the terrorists were carrying food supplies and medicines, suggesting they had planned to take hostages.

The assailants, whose attack has been claimed by separatist militant group the Balochistan Liberation Army, were thwarted in their murderous campaign as they approached a security checkpoint.

The BLA spokesperson blamed China for "exploiting" the nation's "resources".

Security forces successfully foiled the attack in Karachi's Clifton area.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered an inquiry into the incident.

But thankfully for the staff of Karachi's Chinese consulate, she thought such a career would have been too "dull and boring".

Hours later, bombing in Orakzai tribal region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province killed at least 25 people and wounded dozens.

Shaikh said he would be able to provide a clearer account of the attack later.

"Pakistan and China's friendship can not be disturbed".

Hategan was understandably very emotional, but Van Dijk did what he could to comfort the recently bereaved ref. Germany had taken a two-goal lead, before Quincy Promes and van Dijk struck back in the last ten minutes.

Two attackers were killed and suicide jackets and weapons were recovered from their possession, police further told.

Islamabad regularly accuses its eastern neighbour India of funding and arming Baloch separatists, and of targeting development projects in the province, particularly CPEC.

Unverified video and photos circulating online show smoke apparently from the blast billowing into the air from the building.

Shah Mahmood Quershi described Friday's attack as a "conspiracy" against Pakistan and China, its longtime ally and friend.

Karachi's police chief Amir Sheikh said at least three terrorists have been killed in the shootout with the security forces. The perpetrators of this heinous attack should be brought to justice expeditiously, the MEA said in a statement.

In August, a suicide bomber rammed into a bus ferrying Chinese workers to the Saindak mining project in southwestern Baluchistan, wounding five workers.

Addressing at the floor of the National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif denounced the attack and demanded of the government to brief the House on the attack. The two states have engaged in several major investment projects.

Karachi, the capital of neighbouring Sindh province, has a militant presence, including Baloch separatists.

Security sources cited by Reuters confirm there has been an attack on the Chinese Consulate.
