The attacker drove a motorbike on Friday into a crowded market in the Shiite Orakza region near the Pakistani-Afghan border. He killed 25 people then himself, just hours after three gunmen stormed the Chinese consulate in Karachi in a separate terrorist incident. They were repelled by the Pakistani police. Two officers were killed and three of the attackers. The consulate attack was claimed by Pakistani separatists who oppose massive Chinese investments in western Pakistan. The Foreign Ministry in Beijing demanded extra measures to protect Chinese citizens in Pakistan.
