Fire and smoke rises from a Pakistani naval aviation base, following an attack by militants in Karachi, Pakistan, Sunday, May 22. Militants attacked a naval aviation base in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi late Sunday, rocking the base with explosions and battling commandos sent in to subdue the attackers, security officials said.

Around a dozen Taliban fighters infiltrated the base to launch the attack, raising fresh concerns about the competency and loyalty of the Pakistani military.

The naval station is located only 15 miles from the country’s largest air base, a suspected nuclear site.

It was the second major Taliban attack in revenge for the US raid that killed bin Laden, and the worst in Pakistan since 2009.
