In Pakistan, a terror attack targeting the Chinese Consulate situated in Karachi's Clifton area was foiled by security forces today, leaving at least seven people dead. 

According to a senior police official, the attackers fired at a check post and then detonated a hand grenade in an attempt to enter the consulate building. 

However, Consulate's security guards quickly barricaded the building to stop them from entering the building. According to Sindh Police and the army's media wing, all the three terrorists were killed in the operation by security forces. 

Police officials confirmed two policemen and two Pakistani civilians among those killed. The separatist group, Baluch Liberation Army,  claimed responsibility for the attack.

In another incident today, at least 25 people were killed and 35 others injured in a blast at a Friday Market in Khyber Pakhtunkhawa province. 

Police said a suicide bomber on a motorbike had driven into the crowded  Kalaya bazaar of the Aurakzai tribal district.
