Gunmen Attack Pakistan Stock Exchange, Citing Its Link to China

ISLAMABAD—The Pakistan Stock Exchange building in Karachi came under attack Monday by an insurgent group saying it targeted the exchange because it is partly owned by a Chinese consortium.

Four gunmen tried to storm the exchange, but all were killed in a shootout with guards in the compound outside the building, police said. Two private security guards and a police officer also died in an eight-minute firefight during which the attackers also threw grenades.
