5 killed as gunmen attack Pakistani airport

Karachi, Pakistan (AP) -- An official in Pakistan says five people have been killed after gunmen attacked a terminal at Karachi's international airport.

Dr. Seemi Jamali of Jinnah Hospital said five bodies had been brought there, as well as one wounded person.

Shaukat Jamal, a spokesman for the Airport Security Force, said gunmen attacked the terminal late Sunday.

Pakistani television stations aired footage of what appeared to be a major fire at the airport, with the silhouette of a jet seen.

Jamal said the Pakistani military has been called in and that police are fighting the attackers.

The attack happened at a terminal not generally used for commercial flights but for special VIP flights. 

Karachi is Pakistan's largest city and has been the site of frequent militant attacks in the past.
