Pakistani insurgents attack Chinese convoy in restive province, causing no casualties, officials say


QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — The Chinese Embassy in Pakistan says insurgents opened fire on a convoy carrying Chinese citizens in the restive Baluchistan province in the southwest of the country. The embassy says there were no casualties in Sunday’s attack in the port city of Gwadar. It said it “strongly condemns this terrorist act.” The Pakistani military, reporting on the same incident, said insurgents attacked a military convoy in Gwadar and that troops returned firing, killing two attackers. The military made no mention of a Chinese presence, but typically escorts convoys carrying Chinese citizens. Chinese companies operating in Baluchistan have been targeted in the past by Baluch insurgents.
