    Gunmen attack security training facility near Karachi airport


    by PressTV

    Pakistan says the attack on its busiest airport in the southern city of Karachi has ended without casualties.

    According to Pakistani officials, the second attack in as many days has ended with the gunmen fleeing the scene. The assailants targeted a security checkpoint near the airport's main premises. Meanwhile a spokesman for Pakistan's civil aviation authority says flight operations at the airport which were suspended earlier, have now resumed. The offensive came a day after militants fought their way into an old terminal at the same airport. They engaged in clashes with troops which left nearly 37 people dead. On Tuesday, the army launched airstrikes on militant hideouts in northwestern tribal areas. The military says at least 15 militants were killed.
