Karachi: Two powerful blasts rocked Pakistan's restive Balochistan province on Friday, killing one person and wounding 12 others, including two police officers, according to a media report.

The blast shook Kharotabad and Khaizi Chowk areas of Quetta, the provincial capital and the largest city of Balochistan.

The first blast went off near the office of a transport company, while a motorcycle packed with explosives parked near the canteen of the company was used in the second blast.

Due to the twin blasts two police officers, at least one person was killed while rescue officials and many journalists were wounded, Geo News reported, quoting rescue sources.

The injured were shifted to Civil and Bolan Medical College Complex hospitals.

The blasts shook the whole locality and shattered the windowpanes of the nearby buildings.

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan has condemned the attack and ordered a probe, the report said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Balochistan, which borders Afghanistan and Iran, is Pakistan's largest and poorest province, rife with ethnic, sectarian and separatist insurgencies.

On April 18, unidentified gunmen donning uniforms of paramilitary soldiers massacred at least 14 passengers, including Pakistan Navy personnel, after forcing them to disembark from buses on a highway in Balochistan.

In May, three heavily-armed militants stormed the Pearl Continental (PC) Hotel in Gwadar and opened random firing, killing a guard.

Gwadar port is one of the focal points of the USD 60 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with many Chinese workers from other provinces of Pakistan working at the port. China is investing heavily in Balochistan under the CPEC initiative.

Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), which is fighting Pakistani rule in Balochistan province, has carried out many attacks in the restive region.

Pakistan has classified the outfit as a terrorist organisation. In July, the US designated the group as a terrorist organisation.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

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…
