Chinese Convoy Attacked in Pakistan, Two Militants Killed

Separatist militants ambushed a convoy of three SUVs carrying Chinese construction engineers on Sunday near the Port of Gwadar in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan Province, a key investment hub for the massive China-Pakistan Economic Corridor initiative.
