Baloch group claims suicide blast carried out by woman that killed 3 Chinese
The Balochistan Liberation Army's Majeed Brigade has claimed responsibility for today's suicide attack at Karachi University, which killed three Chinese nationals.
The suicide attack, according to the group's spokesperson, was carried out by a female suicide bomber named Shari Baloch.
According to initial accounts, the explosion occurred in a van near Karachi University's Confucius Institute.
After the explosion, rescue and security officials arrived on the scene and roped off the affected regions, launching rescue operations.
According to police sources, the vehicle held seven to eight individuals. However, the actual number of casualties has yet to be determined.
The bomb was first thought to have been caused by a gas cylinder.
Chinese people working in Pakistan have previously been targeted by Pakistani terror groups.
This isn't the first time this has happened.
In the year 2021, in Pakistan's restive southwestern Balochistan region, a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a vehicle carrying Chinese people on Friday, killing at least two children and wounding three others, including a Chinese national.
