Four policemen were martyred in a blast in a market in Quetta's Satellite Town, according to Quetta Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Police Abdul Razzaq Cheema.

The DIG said that two policemen and seven civilians have also been injured in the blast, while a police van was also damaged.

The injured are being shifted to the Civil Hospital, where an emergency has been imposed. Meanwhile, security officials have arrived at the area and cordoned it off.

The nature of the blast has not yet been determined and it is not clear if it was a targeted attack.

ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD

PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif condemned the blast in Quetta, saying that "by targeting Balochistan multiple times the enemy has made its intentions clear."

Sharif said "the surge in terrorism incidents is worrisome."

He paid tribute to the security officials for "risking their lives in defence of the country and its people".

"The entire nation stands determined until the eradication of terrorism," he added.

It is the fourth act of violence in the country since the holy month of Ramazan began. On May 8, five policemen were martyred in what officials described as a suicide bombing targeting an Elite Force van detailed to the security of the Data Darbar shrine in Lahore.

Later the same day, three people, including a tribal leader named Wali Khan Achakzai, were killed in a blast in Killa Abdullah.

Today's blast comes two days after a terrorist attack on Pearl Continental Hotel, Gwadar in which three people were killed while four were injured.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
