Suspected Militants Attack Pakistan Air Force Base

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.

"Terrorists" is the term Pakistani authorities use to describe militant groups such as the Taliban.
