QUETTA, Pakistan -- Separatist insurgents in southwestern Pakistan have vowed to continue attacks on Beijing-led Belt and Road projects in the region, despite the assassination of their commander two weeks ago.

A Baloch Liberation Army spokesperson said the group will continue to follow the path of their slain commander Aslam Baloch. "Our struggle will continue till the stoppage of exploitation of Baloch resources by China," said Jiyand Baloch, the spokesperson.
