A woman stood outside the Chinese cultural center in Karachi, Pakistan on April 26. She held a bag and fidgeted while a white minibus approached. As the bus turned towards the entrance, the scene erupted into a fireball.
The bomb killed the woman, Shari Baloch, as well as four passengers, three of which were Chinese citizens. She is the first female suicide bomber for the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA).
The BLA said the attack was meant to target a “symbol of Chinese economic, political, and cultural expansionism.” The group warned China to halt “exploitation projects” in Pakistan.
Nehemiah with FMI says, “Shari was married to a doctor and had two young children. She was a teacher by profession and had a master’s of philosophy. She wanted to study and pursue her career in zoology. She migrated from Balochistan to Karachi just a few months ago.”
