Heavily armed gunmen have attacked Karachi international airport, with at least four security guards reported injured. According to reports on Sunday, four to six armed men hurled hand grenades and opened fire as they entered the airport entrance. All local and international flights were suspended at the airport. A witness told Al Jazeera's Osama Bin Javaid in a phone interview that she could see smoke rising from near the Jinnah Terminal. Senior police official Rao Muhammad Anwar said the attackers were armed with automatic weapons and grenades and were exchanging gunfire with security guards. "Exchange of fire is continuing. We don't know the exact number of the attackers but suspect four to six terrorists have attacked the airport," he told the AFP news agency.
