A suicide bombing targeting a vehicle carrying Chinese nationals in southwest Pakistan; killed two children and wounded three others on Friday.

"Two children have been killed and three injured in the attack," Liaquat Shahwani, a spokesman for the Balochistan government, told Reuters.

Police said the suicide blast took place at the East Bay Road in the port city of Gwadar around 7 p.m., adding that Chinese nationals suffered minor injuries.

Gwadar is in the southwestern province of Balochistan, where separatist militants have waged a long-running insurgency.

The tragic attack came after the bus attack in the northwestern Pakistani province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, in which 13 people, including nine Chinese workers and two Pakistani soldiers, were killed earlier in the month.
