Earlier this week, at least 3 people were killed and more than 50 injured after a powerful explosion hit a procession of Shiite Muslims in the Bahawalnagar city in eastern Pakistan.
A vehicle carrying Chinese nationals was hit by a suicide bomb in Pakistan's Balochistan province, Reuters reported, citing a government official.
"Two children have been killed and three injured in the attack," Liaquat Shahwani, a spokesman for the Balochistan government, said.
​According to a police statement, the blast took place at the East Bay Road about 19:00 local time. 
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.​  
China has been involved in the development of the Gwadar port on the Arabian Sea as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, which is one of the parts of China's Belt and Road infrastructure project.
