Thirty people were killed as Pakistan's military fought an all-night battle yesterday with Taliban gunmen who besieged Karachi airport.

The assault has left Pakistan's nascent peace process with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan in tatters and officials in the northwest reported that some 25,000 people had fled a restive tribal district in the past 48 hours, fearing a long-awaited ground offensive.

Ten militants were among the dead in the assault on Karachi's Jinnah International Airport, the latest spectacular offensive to be launched by the TTP in an insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives since 2007.
