The spokesman for the Balochistan Liberation Army, Geand Baloch, told Reuters: "There were three suicide attackers".
Pakistan's foreign minister says Pakistani security forces have foiled an attempt by militants to spread terror in attacking the Chinese Consulate in the southern port city of Karachi. The attack on Friday was claimed by Baluch separatists, a militant group from Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province.
In a separate attack on Friday, a bomb killed at least 25 people at a market in the town of Klaya in the Orakzai region of the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province, which borders Afghanistan.
The Pakistan Prime Minister's office issued a statement saying Imran Khan had ordered an inquiry into the attack and he "desired that elements behind this incident must be unearthed". Orakzai has been the scene of several militant attacks in recent years, mostly by Pakistani Sunni militants, who revile Shiites as apostates.
Up to four gunmen tried to enter the consulate but were stopped by security guards at a checkpoint, reports said.
Police said one of the attackers was wearing a suicide vest.
The former cricket star condemned both attacks and said were "part of a planned campaign to create unrest in the country by those who do not want Pakistan to prosper".
"Two attackers have entered the visa section of the consulate, diplomats are safe", a senior police officer told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
