Pakistan: Karachi airport training center attacked

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) - A Pakistani spokesman says militants have attacked a security training facility at the Karachi airport and that a firefight is underway with the attackers.

Ghulam Abbas Memon, a spokesman for the Airport Security Force, says gunmen tried to enter the facility from two different entrances on Tuesday but the security forces were fighting them back.

Memon says he doesn't have any details on the number of attackers or possible casualties.

The attack comes less than two days after gunmen laid siege to the Karachi airport in an attack that left 36 people dead, including 10 Taliban gunmen.
