A large number of Chinese nationals are leaving Pakistan from Karachi after 3 Chinese nationals and one Pakistani citizen were killed in a suicide attack by a Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) at Karachi University on April 26.

A video is going viral on social media showing a large number of Chinese in PPE kits leaving from Karachi Airport.

A large number of Chinese engineers and other workers are working in Pakistan's Sindh and Baluchistan provinces as part of One Belt One Road (OBOR) project. Many Chinese teachers are even teaching Mandarin to Pakistanis in various Universities and institutes.

This has irked the indigenous Baloch and Sindhi political activists are they oppose any Chinese investment in their region.

The recent suicide attack that killed 3 Chinese teachers was carried outside the University of Karachi's (KU) Confucius Institute. The Baluchistan Liberation Army claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Karachi suicide bombing is part of an intensifying Baloch pushback against the 54 billion USD China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). It also spotlights the larger and deeper struggle for Baluchistan's freedom.
