KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) -- Security officials say militants have
attacked a naval aviation base in the southern city of Karachi.
The officials say navy commandos entered the base soon after the
attack late Sunday and are trading fire with the militants. The
militants have also thrown grenades at the commandos, and at least
one airplane is on fire.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the
sensitivity of the issue.
Police initially said the attack occurred at an air force base
that is adjacent to the naval aviation base.
Ambulance driver Mohammed Ilyaz said at least two injured people
have been transferred to the hospital.
But authorities are holding back many of the ambulances because
of the firing taking place.
