Double terror attacks in Pakistan kill at least 27 people
Two separate terror attacks took place in Pakistan on Friday morning, killing at least 27 people, and wounding over 20 people.
The first terror attack was a suicide bombers attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi. At least two Pakistani policemen were killed and a security guard was wounded during the attack.
The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), which also describes itself as the Baloch Liberation Army, claimed responsibility for the attack. A spokesman for the group explained the attack by saying that “China is exploiting our resources.”
The three suicide bombers were killed before they were able to enter the facility, the police chief of the city of Karachi said.
“There were three attackers and all three have been killed. They could not even get in the compound. They tried to get into the visa section,” the police chief, Amir Shaikh, told reporters.
