Gunmen attack Pakistan air force base in Peshawar


At least six militants have been killed during an attack on a Pakistani air force base in Peshawar, officials say.
Up to 10 gunmen attacked a guard post and then entered the Badaber air base, Major General Asim Bajwa said.He said security forces reached the area shortly after and sealed it off but a gun battle was still under way.
Peshawar has frequently been targeted by militants. Last December more than 150 people were killed when Taliban gunmen attacked an army-run school.
Maj Gen Bajwa said a rapid response force had engaged the attackers and contained them around a guard room.
A major had been injured in the exchange of fire, he said, but added that “clearance operations” were now in progress.
No group has said they carried out the attack. – BBC News
