KARACHI, Pakistan — Gunmen attacked a cargo and V.I.P. area of Karachi’s international airport late Sunday night, engaging in a heavy firefight with security forces and killing at least four of them, Pakistani security officials said.

The officials said that at least eight attackers were involved, and that the fighting was continuing early Monday morning.

Security forces sealed off the airport, and flights began being diverted away from Karachi within minutes of the fighting. Witnesses saw smoke rising from the airport’s old terminal, and one Pakistani news channel showed footage of a fire burning close to a plane.

Politically incorrect. Must be more culturally sensitive. No more suicide bombers. The media has been urged to call them "homicide bombers".

Sanjay Gupta was suggesting on CNN that they may have been just looking for a plane they could use to go somewhere in.
Maybe they just wanted to join a jihad somewhere and thought that they could just steal a plane, from watching too many movies, probably.

"confirmed Indian weaponry".
Yeah, sure. Confirmed by whom? Sounds like the Pakistani version of a false flag to me. We'll know soon enough depending on Pakistan's reaction to the attack.

Your phrasing of this is inappropriate and offensive. Pretty sure this can be misread as busting nuts all over a plane.

Is it just me, or does constant posting of tweets and single links really annoying and not really help a thread? I have noticed a trend in this, and it really ruins a thread in my opinion. Besides being against the heart of no single line posts and basically bumping a thread, I would just hate to see this get worse.

I begin to get distrustful of the information I am being fed. Ripe for consumption.
