The attack killed 3 Chinese nationals, and 1 Pakistani citizen. The Chinese nationals worked at the Confucius Institute at the Karachi university. The Confucius Institute teaches Chinese language to locals.

Pakistan's Balochistan region has been witnessing a rise in insurgency, with armed groups highlighting demands ranging from autonomy to complete independence. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, or CPEC, passing through the region has also angered the locals, who are seeking a greater share of the wealth generated from resources in the region.
