Pakistan: Regime Says Attack That Killed Chinese Engineers Was Planned in Afghanistan

Source: US News & World Report

“Pakistan’s military said on Tuesday that a suicide bomb attack that killed five Chinese engineers was planned in neighbouring Afghanistan, and that the bomber was also an Afghan national. The suicide bomber rammed a vehicle into a convoy of Chinese engineers working on a dam project in northwest Pakistan in March, killing six people. … Afghanistan’s Taliban-run administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Kabul has previously said rising violence in Pakistan is a domestic issue for Islamabad and denied allowing the use of its territory by militants.” (05/07/24)
