The China state-affiliated media CGTN tweeted on Thursday that China will dispatch a task force to Pakistan to jointly investigate the deadly blast that killed multiple Chinese and urged the Pakistani government to ensure the safety of the Chinese personnel and the security of the projects there, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman. Nine Chinese workers were among the 12 people killed on Wednesday when a blast on a bus sent it careening down a ravine in Kohistan. While Pakistani officials said the nature of the blast was under investigation, the Chinese Embassy in Islamabad said its nationals had come under “attack”. The bus was carrying Chinese engineers, surveyors, and mechanical staff to the Dasu Hydropower Project construction site in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a local government official who did not want to be named told AFP. “The blast sparked a fire in the engine plunging the vehicle into a ravine,” he said, adding another 28 Chinese nationals were injured. The Chinese workers were going to the site area from Barseen in the morning when the blast occurred and wrecked the vehicle.
