Islamabad says an investigation shows a “nexus of Indian RAW and Afghan NDS” behind a bus attack in July that killed nine Chinese workers en route to a dam construction site.
The attack on a bus that killed nine Chinese workers last month in Pakistan was a suicide attack, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said.
The minister said on Thursday that an investigation into the attack showed there was a "nexus of Indian RAW and Afghan NDS" in the attack, referring to India's and Afghanistan's intelligence agencies.
The blast hit a bus carrying the Chinese workers on their way to a dam construction site on July 14. Four other people were also killed in the attack.

Chinese companies have invested billions of dollars in Pakistan as part of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative, which seeks to build roads, ports and power plants in developing countries.
The $1.9 billion Dasu hydropower project where the Chinese engineers worked is backed by a state-run Chinese firm.
