Just last month, 6 Chinese citizens were killed in a suicide bombing attack in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province when their convoy was attacked by a suicide bomber in northwest Pakistan.

A suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a convoy of Chinese engineers which was on its way from Islamabad to their camp in Dasu, the biggest hydropower project in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan, where they worked.

Following the suicide attack, a Chinese company halted its civil construction operation, laying off hundreds of employees at a hydropower project in Pakistan.
