Sri Lankan Airlines says that flight UL 183 which was due to depart Colombo at 1.00 pm today is cancelled due to Pakistani authorities closing down Karachchi International Airport until further notice.

Clashes at Pakistan's largest and busiest airport left more than 23 people dead after militants armed with grenades stormed into a cargo area yesterday.

Violence erupted at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi around 11:30 p.m. last night, and raged on for more than five hours as security forces fought off attackers, leaving some passengers trapped inside the airport.
