The suicide bomber that targeted the Chinese consulate in Karachi used a foreign-made C-4 plastic explosive, said Pakistani police, who suggested Saturday that the attack was orchestrated in India. In a tweet, Major General Asif Ghafoor, army's spokesperson, had said that Karachi police and Pakistani Rangers had brought the "situation under control".

Furthermore, the BLA in conjunction with another separatist group, the Baloch Liberation Front (BLF), killed two Pakistani paramilitary soldiers on October 26.

Authorities said the dead civilians were a father and a son who were picking up their visas for China.

So far this year, the Baluch Liberation Army has claimed responsibility for 12 attacks against security personnel guarding projects linked to the Chinese Pakistan Economic Corridor and its infrastructure.

The Philippines has condemned the terrorist attack in Pakistan that killed almost 40 people, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said. Prime Minister Imran Khan "strongly condemned the firing incident" saying it was part of a conspiracy against the Pakistan and China economic and strategic cooperation.

India denies helping the Baluchistan insurgents and was quick to condemn the violence. But Beijing made no comment on whether Qureshi's reference to Pakistan and China fighting the Baloch separatists together, could result in its security forces playing a bigger role in CPEC.

India and the United States also accuse Pakistan of supporting the Afghan Taliban.

They were six strokes behind. "To be honest, I didn't think we would finish today. And we made some really good recovery shots out of bunkers to save par".

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing called on Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in Karachi today and thanked him for timely contacting with them and foiling attack on Chinese Counslate in Karachi yesterday.

"These threats were already on Pakistan and China's threat radar", Rana said.

As the Karachi attack unfolded, an explosion and gunshots rang out in its affluent Clifton neighbourhood and a plume of smoke rose over the area. It was not clear if the auto had exploded. "These terrorists will not succeed", Khan said.

A spokesman for the BLA confirmed there were three attackers.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal told reporters in Islamabad that it is too early to know who is responsible.

Baluchistan, which is on the borders of Afghanistan and Iran, has rich mineral and natural gas reserves but is Pakistan's poorest province.

Separatists have for decades campaigned against what they see as the unfair exploitation of resources, in particular natural gas and minerals. He said the safe city project will be completed soon.
