A gun battle between security forces and Taliban militants raged on Monday morning inside a naval base in Pakistan — more than 10 hours after attackers with guns and grenades stormed the compound in the coastal city of Karachi.
At least four naval officials were killed and seven others wounded in the fighting on the grounds of the Mehran base, said Pakistani navy spokesman Irfan Ul Haq.
He did not have the number of militants who died or were injured.
The Pakistani Taliban said the attack at the naval air station was to avenge the killing of innocent civilians. The group’s spokesman, Ihsan Ullah, told CNN on Monday that Pakistani security forces are carrying out the killings on the instruction of the United States in the name of a “war on terror.”
