Pakistani police investigate whether attack on dental clinic was anti-Chinese


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—Police in the southern city of Karachi are investigating whether the attacker who opened fire on a well-known dental clinic, killing one person and injuring two others, was targeting members of the city’s Chinese community .

Pakistan has seen a spate of attacks on Chinese nationals in recent years as their presence has grown alongside Beijing’s investment program in its close ally. Ethnic separatists and jihadists have hit Chinese personnel and interests. Pakistan has been a showcase for China’s global Belt and Road Initiative, which is building infrastructure overseas in a bid to expand Chinese influence.
