Three suicide bombers attacked the Chinese consulate in Pakistan's southern city of Karachi early on Friday, but were killed before entering the building, the city's police chief said.
At least two police officers were killed in the attack, which was claimed by the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), an ethnic insurgent group that said it opposes Chinese exploitation of natural resources in the country's southwest. It also describes itself as the Balochistan Liberation Army.
The Balochis are dirt poor. They should have dealt with the Chinese directly and tried to squeeze some benefit from selling those natural resources. It's not the ideal scenario but it sure would have been better than antagonizing the largest ethnic group on Earth.
