Chinese shipping employee shot dead in Karachi

A Chinese man working with a shipping company in Pakistan was shot dead in what police described as a targeted attack in Karachi, police and hospital officials said.

The man, identified as Chen Zhu, 45, was in his car when he was attacked in an upmarket area of the port city of Karachi.

At least 10 shots were fired at the car, and Chen suffered a single bullet wound in the head, police said.

While there was no claim of responsibility and the motive was not immediately clear, China in December warned its nationals in Pakistan of plans for imminent attacks on Chinese targets there.
