Terrorists attack in Karachi

Recently, 10 people killed in pakistan alongwith 4 terrorists and 4 security guards, 1 sub-inspecter of police and a civilian, The Dawn reported and also said that three police officials were badly injured.

The gunmen, according to The Dawn, stepped out of a vehicle and lobbed grenades before entering the stock exchange premises.

AK-47 rifles, hand grenades, magazines and other explosive material have been recovered, the police said, adding that the equipment indicated that they had come for a long siege. Sindh Rangers Director General Umer Ahmed Bukhari said that a tweet had been posted in which the attack has been attributed to the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), The Dawn reported. However, Bukhari added that a final statement on it will be issued after investigation.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said, “Strongly condemn attempted terrorist attack on Pakistan Stock Exchange, thwarted by valiant security personnel, four of whom sacrificed their lives protecting Pakistan. We have repeatedly warned about externally supported terrorism. PSX is safe & open for business.”

The BLA is a Baloch secessionist militant group headed by UK-based Hyrbayair Marri. Pakistan has long accused India of backing Baloch separatists and militants — an allegation India has always denied. It also alleges an Afghan hand in the movement.

Also there may be some chinese investment links but nothing can be said untill the investigation goes to conclusion.
