Pakistan: Attack on Chinese consulate : 4 killed.

(Karachi) Terrorists attempted this morning to storm the Chinese consulate in Karachi, triggering an hour-long shootout during which two Pakistani civilians, two police officers and the three assailants were killed.


The attack has been claimed by a terrorist group from the south-western province of Balochistan,  who have made it very clear they will strike at the heart of Pakistan’s close relationship with China, which has invested very heavily in projects in the country. All the Chinese diplomats and staff at the consulate have been reported as safe and unharmed during the attack.
