    Gunmen stormed a hotel in PoK and shot dead 10 tourists, including Chinese, Ukrainian and Russian nationals, police officials said on Sunday.
    The gunmen targeted a hotel in a town in Gilgit-Baltistan that serves as the base camp for mountaineers headed for Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest peak.
    The attack took place late last night in the remote region.
    Deputy Inspector General of Police Ali Sher told reporters that the armed men barged into a hotel and killed tourists from different countries.
    He confirmed that 10 tourists were killed.
    Police cordoned off the area and launched a hunt for the killers.
    Reports said five Ukrainians, three Chinese, a Russian national and a Pakistani were among the dead though this could not be independently confirmed.
    The incident was the first of its kind in Gilgit-Baltistan and raised serious questions about the safety of scores of tourists, many of them foreigners that visit the region.

    And I thought that you are going to send these fellas into India post 2014.

    And that won't be possible if you implement what you have written.

    China asks Pakistan to guarantee safety of its nationals

    BEIJING: China on Sunday asked Pakistan to "guarantee the safety" of its nationals working there as it condemned a violent militant attack on a base camp in the country's north in which 10 people, including three Chinese tourists, were killed.

    About 14 to 16 Taliban gunmen disguised as soldiers killed nine foreign tourists and a Pakistani guide in an unprecedented attack on a base camp at Buner Valley in Gilgit-Baltistan.

    "The foreign ministry strongly condemned a violent attack in Pakistan-administered Kashmir that resulted in 11 deaths, including those of several Chinese tourists," state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

    Two Chinese nationals and one Chinese American were among the killed, according to Xinhua report.

    State television said the shocking attack was reportedly carried by Pakistan Taliban and another militant group Jundullah claimed responsibility for the attack.

    China's foreign ministry spokesperson's office said the Chinese embassy in Pakistan has maintained close contact with Pakistan's foreign ministry, interior department and military to further verify related information.

    The embassy has asked Pakistan to make all-out efforts to take care of the survivors, apprehend the gunmen as soon as possible and take measures to guarantee the safety and legitimate rights of Chinese citizens in Pakistan.

    It also asked Pakistan to cooperate in dealing with the aftermath of the incident, as well as to severely punish the attackers.

    The embassy has been in contact with a Chinese survivor and asked the Pakistani military to protect the survivor.

    It said the ministry and the Chinese embassy in Pakistan have attached great importance to the incident and have launched an emergency response to deal with the issue.

    It quoted local police in PoK as saying that the incident took place this morning when unidentified gunmen opened fire at tourists in a hotel near the base camp of 8,126-metre Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest peak that is popular among adventurous travellers.

    The foreign ministry and the Chinese embassy in Pakistan will work to properly handle the incident and offer assistance to the victims, the spokesperson's office said.

    Significantly, the Chinese foreign ministry statement referred Gilgit-Baltistan where the attack took place as Pakistan administered Kashmir while the Xinhua report on the attack from Islamabad referred the area as Pakistan's Northern Areas.

    PoK provides the geographical link between China and Pakistan.

    It appears that the Talib did not get the message about "China and Pakistan's all weather relationship".

    Pakistan and China are truly made in Allah's heaven for each other !!

    One country pops up counterfeit knock-off copycat products every other day -
    And the other one pops up a new terror organization every other day !!!!!

    A match made in heaven indeed !!

    I wish all Chinese tourists many happy travels to the "Land of The Pure".

    In this relationship except for Talibans ( as in this case) the rein is in the hands of Chinese who have drilled hole in nose of Pakistan and put nose ring to control them.
