Chinese shot dead at Karachi clinic

Chinese shot dead at Karachi clinic

Karachi, Sep 29 (UNI) An armed attacker posing as a dental patient killed a Chinese-Pakistani national and injured two others at a clinic here in Pakistan.
All three were Chinese-Pakistani dual nationals and had operated the dental clinic in the area for 40 years, BBC reported.
Detectives say the attacker, who was in his early 30s, didn't hurt Pakistanis at the clinic in the Wednesday incident, it said.
The suspect escaped with the help of an accomplice on a motorbike.
Police have identified the victims as Ronald Chow, who worked as an assistant to dentist Richard Hu, 74, and his wife Margaret, 72.
According to local media, the couple were wounded in the shooting and were being treated in hospital. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the motive is not known, the BBC said.
This is not the first attack on Chinese citizens in Pakistan.
In April, three Chinese language teachers and their Pakistani driver were killed in an alleged suicide bombing in Karachi, near the city's Confucius Institute.
The separatist Baloch Liberation Army -- which opposes Chinese investment in Pakistan for not benefiting locals -- said it attacked the vehicle, the report said.
China is heavily involved in large infrastructure projects across Pakistan, including in resource-rich Balochistan province - the country's poorest region, and home to a long-running insurgency.
Wednesday's attack was condemned by Pakistan Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, who said such incidents were "intolerable". "The security of Chinese residents should be ensured in every way," he tweeted.
