Shortly after 1900 local time (1400 UTC) on 20 August 2021, a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a vehicle that was transporting Chinese nationals on Eastbay Expressway in the Baluch Ward area of the southwestern city of Gwadar, located in Baluchistan province. Two bystanders were killed in the blast and three people, including the targeted vehicle’s driver and a Chinese national, were wounded. So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the bombing. At least two other attacks targeting Chinese nationals occurred elsewhere in Pakistan in July; the outlawed Baluchistan Liberation Front separatist group claimed responsibility for the 28 July killing of a Chinese national in Karachi.
