Militants attack major Pakistan air base; 9 killed

Police commandos wait to enter the Minhas base at Kamra, in Punjab province August 16, 2012. Suspected Islamist militants attacked an air force base in central Pakistan early on Thursday, the air force said, in a brazen challenge to the country's powerful military. Air force commandos were exchanging gunfire with what an air force statement called "terrorists", hours after the attackers entered Minhas base in the town of Kamra, in Punjab province.
