Sun Rises in Pakistan, Taliban Attacks Karachi Airport Again

CNN:

Karachi, Pakistan (CNN) -- For the second time in two days, Pakistan's largest and busiest airport was forced to shut down after militants launched a brazen attack on airport security forces.

Tuesday's assault targeted the Airport Security Forces academy near Karachi's Jinnah International Airport, the airport's manager told CNN's Saima Mohsin in Karachi.

Security forces told CNN that an unknown number of gunmen attacked the academy's entrance and were met with an armed response. The attackers fled, and no one was killed in the attack, officials said.

Once again, the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility...

...The militant group, also known as the TTP, had warned of more carnage starting Tuesday.

Shahid said earlier this week that the Pakistani Taliban would engage "in a full-out war with the Pakistani state, starting on June 10."

An all out war for the world's largest producer of unprocessed human excrement? This ought to be good.
