Chinese citizens and enterprises in Mali should enhance their safety awareness, strictly abide by local laws, regulations and customs and ensure personal and property safety, the embassy said. 

The embassy statement did not specifically mention the attack. 

The AFP reported that an attack occurred at a construction site and three Chinese nationals and two Mauritanians were kidnapped. 

The bus blast in Pakistan on July 14 was confirmed to be a terrorist attack, in which nine Chinese and four Pakistanis were killed. 

All the victims worked at the China-invested Dasu hydropower project. A joint team sent to investigate the attack has asked Pakistan to tighten up their security measures, to ensure the safety of all Chinese employees in the country.
