At least four people have been killed and a dozen others wounded when a powerful car bomb exploded at a top hotel hosting the Chinese ambassador in south-western Pakistan.
 

The blast took place in the car park of the Serena – a luxury hotel chain throughout Pakistan – in the city of Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province where the military has been fighting a decade-long low level insurgency.
 

“At least four people have been killed and 12 others were injured,” Pakistan’s interior minister, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, describing it as “an act of terrorism”.
 

“A Chinese delegation of around four people led by the ambassador was lodging in the hotel.
 

“The ambassador was out for a meeting when the explosion took place,” he added.
 

The Pakistan Taliban later claimed responsibility for the bombing which they said was a suicide attack.
 

惊险!巴基斯坦酒店爆炸致多人死亡,中国大使躲过一劫

当地时间4月21日晚,巴基斯坦西南部俾路支省省会奎达市(Quetta)一家名为塞雷纳(Serena)的连锁酒店的停车场发生爆炸。巴基斯坦内政部长谢赫•拉希德•艾哈迈德(Sheikh Rashid Ahmed)在接受采访时表示,至少“4人丧生,另有12人受伤”。艾哈迈德认为,这起爆炸事件“是恐怖主义行为”。
 

高级警官阿兹哈尔•伊克拉姆(Azhar Ikram)声称:“初步调查表明,爆炸来源于安装在车辆上的简易引爆装置。”伊克拉姆补充说,具体细节“有待商榷”,当地警局仍在调查停车场是否有更多车辆被安放了类似的引爆装置。
 

据报道,巴基斯坦的塔利班组织宣称“对爆炸案负责”。该组织一名发言人说:“这是一起自杀式袭击,我们派出的袭击者在车辆上装满了炸弹。”
 

据悉,中国驻巴基斯坦大使农融于爆炸当日下榻于塞雷纳酒店,但事发时已经外出参加活动。据俾路支省政府发言人的推文,农融大使于当天早些时候与省首席部长贾姆•卡马尔•汗(Jam Kamal Khan)会晤。
