Taliban militants assaulted the headquarters of Pakistan’s naval air force in Karachi, killing 13 people, injuring 16 others and blowing up at least two military aircraft.
The assault that started at 10:30 pm on Sunday at PNS Mehran base near Shahrah-e-Faisal ended 14 hours later, after more than 20 Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants stormed the heavily guarded building with guns and grenades.
Monday morning saw trucks carrying military and paramilitary rangers into the base as security forces battled to end the siege during which two P-3C Orion, maritime patrol aircraft, had been destroyed.
As the gunbattle continued, there has been a lack of information on the residents living at the airbase. One Twitterer, @RJ_kulsoom has been tweeting live on what has been happening at PNS Mehran.
