Insurgents step up attacks on Chinese in Pakistan

PESHAWAR – An attempt to blow up a convoy of Chinese workers in southwest Balochistan province was stopped when Pakistan police arrested a suspected female suicide bomber on Monday.

Police arrested the woman suspected of being a suicide bomber at the border area near Afghanistan and Iran. Law enforcement officers claimed she was planning to blow herself up and in the process kill several Chinese nationals working on the flagship project of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative.

On May 18, the Balochistan government confirmed that a suspected female suicide bomber associated with the outlawed Balochistan Liberation Army’s (BLA) Majeed Brigade was taken into custody at Turbat, a city in southern Balochistan.
