Uzbek militants fighting with the Pakistani Taliban say they carried out Sunday's deadly assault on Karachi's international airport.

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan posted photos of 10 men in black turbans holding AK-47s who had sought revenge for military air strikes.

At least 39 people were killed in the airport raid, including all 10 gunmen.

DNA tests are being conducted on the gunmen, who officials in Karachi said appeared to be of Uzbek origin.

Reports state that the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan is a highly trained militant group, which works closely with al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.
