    June 10, 2014

    Unidentified gunmen on Tuesday opened fire outside Pakistan’s Karachi international airport, a day after an all-night siege ended with the killing of more than 30 people, including 10 Taliban militants.

    A heavy contingent of security forces is engaged in a gun battle at the  Airport Security Force (ASF) camp number 2, situated near the Jinnah International Airport, Dawn News reported.


    About four to five terrorists attacked the camp from Pehlwan Goth side, TV channels reported.


    Exchange of firing continues between the ASF officials and terrorists outside the camp. Sounds of explosions were also heard, causing panic among citizens in the vicinity.


    Ranges and police continents have rushed to the scene.  An emergency situation has been imposed in the area.


    The attack came a day after the deadly assault at Karachi international airport in which 12 security personnel, 8 civilian and 10 terrorists were killed.


    The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack on airport.


    The Twitter account of the CAA, @AirportPakistan also tweeted that EK 606 from Dubai which was expected to arrive at Karachi airport at 12:50pm is now returning to Dubai. It also posted that a Shaheen International Airlines flight NL 162 coming from Multan has been sent back.


    Roads leading to the airport have been cordoned off as the standoff between security forces and terrorists persists. (KH/SI)
