Four dead after gunmen attack Chinese consulate in Pakistan

Multiple explosions, gunshots fired near Chinese consulate in Karachi, Pakistan

Three to four suspected terrorists are believed to be trying to enter the Chinese consulate. A separatist group from Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it is fighting "Chinese occupation".

Separately, at least 35 people were killed and more than 50 wounded in a bomb attack on a crowded market in a town in Pakistan's northwest.

The spokesperson said that the Consulate staff were safe and condoled the death of the two Pakistani policemen.

At least two policemen have been killed when unidentified gunmen stormed the Chinese consulate in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, officials said.

The BLA is just one of the militant groups operating in Balochistan, Pakistan's largest and poorest province, which is rife with ethnic, sectarian and separatist insurgencies. Many of them are linked to the sprawling China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, known as CPEC.

Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned the assault.

There has always been resentment in Balochistan against Chinese investments in the province, particularly those that pertain to the development of the port of Gwadar.

The Ministry of External Affairs has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi.

China is a longtime ally and has invested heavily in transport projects in Pakistan.

Climate change will severely affect United States economy
Sea level changes "might reshape the USA population distribution", says the report, entitled the National Climate Assessment. In a statement released Friday, former Vice President Al Gore criticized the timing of the report's release.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters in Islamabad that "all the terrorists have been eliminated".

The USD 60 billion CPEC is a string of huge infrastructure investments by China in Pakistan which will link its western Xinjiang province with the Arabian Sea port of Gwadar in Balochistan.

A worsening of Security situation in Balochistan will make it harder for China to go ahead with the massive multi-billion dollar project in Pakistan.

According to reports, the blast happened at the main gate of a seminary in the lower part of Orakzai Agency, one of Pakistan's seven mountainous tribal regions located near the Pakistan-Afghan border.

Over the years, construction projects and Chinese workers in Balochistan have been repeatedly targeted by militants but this is one of the most prominent such attacks to date.

Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province, has a militant presence.

Last year, China had told Pakistan to ensure the security of its envoy following threats to his life by a terror outfit - East Turkistan Islamic Movement.
