The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack on Karachi airport in revenge for their late leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, who was killed in a US drone strike in November.

The initial assault at Jinnah international airport in Pakistan’s southern port city began late on Sunday and raged until dawn, when the military said that at least 24 people – including all 10 attackers – had been killed.

Equipped with suicide vests, grenades and rocket-launchers, they had battled security forces in one of the most brazen attacks in years in Pakistan’s biggest city.
