Armed opposers of Chinese investments in Pakistan stormed five star hotel
Three gunmen have stormed the five-star hotel Pearl-Continental Hotel Gwadain un the Pakistani province of Balochistan, killing at least one person, officials say. A hotel spokesman said there were not many guests and staff due to Ramadan.
All guests were able to evacuate guests and staff. Security officers were able to kill all three attackers.
The target were Chinese investors according to Militants. China is investing tens of millions of Dollars in the region in Pakistan.
Overlooking the Arabian Sea, Zaver Pearl-Continental Hotel Gwadar is located on the majestic Koh-e-Batil Hill, south of West Bay on Fish Harbour Road. The five-star hotel is ideal for both business and leisure travelers.
The separatist Balochistan Liberation Army said it had carried out the attack to target Chinese and other investors. Militants in Balochistan oppose Chinese investment, saying it is of little benefit to local people.
