Armed sep­a­ratists stormed the Chi­nese Con­sulate in Pak­istan’s south­ern port city of Karachi, trig­ger­ing an hour-long shootout dur­ing which two Pak­istani civil­ians, two po­lice of­fi­cers and all three as­sailants were killed, in­clud­ing one who was wear­ing a sui­cide vest, Pak­istani of­fi­cials said.
