KARACHI, Pakistan (AA) – At least five Chinese nationals and their local driver were killed in a suicide bombing in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, police said.

The terrorism incident occurred in the Shangla district of northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into a vehicle carrying Chinese nationals, and others, Mohammad Ali, deputy inspector general of Malakund region, which includes Shangla district, told reporters.

Chinese engineers were on their way from Islamabad to their camp in Dasu in the Upper Kohistan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Gandapur added.

As of yet, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), an umbrella organization for several militant groups operating in Pakistan, has been linked to attacks on Chinese workers in the past terror attacks in the region.

In July 2021, nine Chinese nationals were killed in a suicide attack in the Upper Kohistan district of the province.
