At least three terrorists were killed during an attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi on Friday, a doctor told Reuters. In addition, two cops and a security guard were also martyred in the attacks.
According to the latest updaes, all the staff inside the consulate is safe.
"We have two cops brought dead and security guard injured due to blast impact," said Seemin Jamali, a doctor at the Jinnah Hospital in Karachi.
Geo TV reported one gunmen was killed in the attack and a "suicide vest" had been recovered.
"Two attackers have entered the visa section of the consulate, diplomats are safe," a senior police officer told Reuters on condition of anonymity. An intelligence source confirmed the attack on the consulate.
TV channel Geo said police had surrounded the attackers inside the consulate. The channel earlier broadcast images of a plume of smoke, apparently sent billowing into the air by the prior blast.
