18 dead after attack on Pakistani airport

Karachi, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani officials say a brazen five-hour attack by militants on the international airport in Karachi left 18 people dead but police managed to regain control of the terminal.

Rizwan Akhtar, the paramilitary Rangers chief, says all 10 "terrorists" who attacked the Jinnah International Airport have been killed.

He says Pakistani forces were combing through the terminal and would hand it back to civilian authority later Monday.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack, which started late Sunday when gunmen disguised as police guards stormed the terminal after opening fire with machine guns and a rocket launcher.

Akhtar says some of the attackers were apparently Uzbeks.
