At least 8 people have died in a separatist attack in Pakistan’s south-western city of Gwadar after 3 gunmen stormed into the only 5-star hotel (Pearl Continental hotel) in the city. 4 hotel workers and a Pakistani soldier were reportedly killed. All the 3 terrorists were gunned down as Pakistani forces seized control of the luxurious hotel. A terrorist group named Balochistan Liberation Army has claimed responsibility of the attack. They said their main target were the “Chinese and other foreign investors”. Pakistani officials said that no investors (domestic or foreign) were killed as no guests were staying in the hotel at the time of attack. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has condemned the attack and lauded the efforts of the Pakistani forces.
