Three more Chinese nationals killed in a terrorist incident in Karachi

KARACHI: In what appears to be a targeted attack on Chinese people in Pakistan, a terror incident in the city of Karachi has claimed the lives of Chinese and Pakistani citizens.

According to reports, the incident occurred outside the IBA (Institute of Business Administration) campus in Karachi, in a vehicle parked outside the campus building with at least three Chinese nationals and a driver inside.

In what is now being suspected of being a targeted suicide bomb assault carried out by a burqa-clad female bomber, the blast burned ablaze the parked vehicle, killing the three Chinese nationals, one male and two females,  and a driver.

Zhang Xiaoping, the director of the Confucius Institute, an IBA Chinese language institute, was among the Chinese nationals killed. The other two female Chinese nationals were also members of the same institute's faculty. The area was blocked off by police, rangers, and the bomb disposal team, and it was later proven that the explosion in the truck was a terror act.

"Ball bearing marks can clearly be seen on the vehicle, indicating that it was a terror attack. It's also clear that one side of the van is more damaged than the other, implying that the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber who blew himself up after approaching the vehicle from one side "said a bystander.
