Twenty-eight people were killed as Pakistan's military fought an all-night battle with Taliban gunmen who besieged Karachi airport armed with rocket launchers and suicide vests, leaving a nascent peace process in tatters.

Ten militants were among the dead, as Pakistan's biggest city witnessed a return of the kind of spectacular offensive waged before by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan during an insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives.

Some of the gunmen were dressed in army uniform, as authorities put their mangled bodies, assault rifles, grenades and rocket launchers on display for the press.

At least three blew up their suicide vests, and one head on display was decapitated.
