Gunmen fired on this plane at Pakistan's Peshawar airport. One woman is dead after being shot in the head. Three crew members were injured.

The plane was carrying 178 passengers traveling from Saudi Arabia when it came under attack.

Police say six bullets penetrated the aircraft - one narrowly missed the captain and another struck the plane's engine.

This is the third attack at a Pakistani airport this month. It comes a week after Pakistani fighter jets pounded militant hideouts prompting the Taliban to say they are planning counter attacks.
