Five Chinese soldiers slain in a terror incident in Pakistan had their bodies brought to Wuhan

The bodies of five Chinese nationals who were killed in a terrorist attack in Pakistan have been repatriated to Wuhan on a special Pakistani military plane. This incident occurred on March 26, when five Chinese individuals, including a woman, and their Pakistani driver, were killed in a major terrorist attack in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The attack took place in the context of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, where thousands of Chinese personnel are working.

China has dispatched investigators to Pakistan to probe the deaths, and Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has ordered a thorough joint investigation into the attack. China has expressed firm support for Pakistan in addressing the incident, urging Islamabad to take effective measures to ensure the safety of Chinese personnel and institutions in the country.

The repatriation of the bodies was accompanied by a special ceremony to pay homage to the deceased personnel. However, the attack has raised concerns among Chinese workers in Pakistan, with some considering leaving the country due to security reasons.

While no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the Balochistan Liberation Army, and the Islamic State-Khorasan are suspected to be involved. The TTP, in particular, has been highlighted as a prime suspect, given its previous involvement in similar attacks targeting Chinese nationals in Pakistan. The incident has underscored the need for enhanced security measures to protect Chinese personnel in the region.
