Ten gunmen disguised as police guards attacked a terminal at the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Pakistan with machine guns and a rocket launcher during a five-hour siege.

Rizwan Akhtar, the paramilitary Rangers chief, says all of the ten gunmen have been killed.

The Jinnah International Airport is Pakistan’s busiest airport.

The attack that began late Sunday and ended before dawn on Monday killed at least 18 people.

During the incident, heavy gunfire and multiple explosions could be heard coming from the terminal, used for VIP flights and cargo.

A major fire rose from the airport, illuminating the night sky in an orange glow.

The spokesman for the Pakistani military, General Asim Bajwa, said on Twitter that no aircraft were damaged.

All incoming flights were diverted and all flights operations were suspended.

Local news channels reported Monday morning that authorities were still searching the airport buildings and intermittent firing was still being heard.

The airport operations would be returned to the Civil Aviation Authority later Monday.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack.
