Pakistan's security forces said they have relaunched a military operation at Karachi airport as gunfire resumed several hours after they announced the end of a militant siege that left 24 dead.

Spokesman for the Rangers paramilitary force said they have relaunched the operation and called in additional troops.

The initial assault at the Jinnah International Airport began last night and raged until dawn, when the military said that all 10 militants 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.

Among the 14 victims were security personnel and four airport workers.
