Karachi airport is under repeat attack by gunmen

Two gunmen on a motorbike opened fire on a security training checkpost at Karachi’s international airport Tuesday just 24 hours after a large-scale Taliban overnight assault Sunday. They exchanged fire  with airport security officials. The death toll from that attack rose to 34 after seven charred bodies were retrieved from the cargo terminal during the army sweep of the airport Monday. After losing 10 men in that siege, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman said attacks would continue “as long as we are breathing.”
