5 Militants Killed in kamra air base attack

ATTOCK: Militants attacked Pakistan Air Force Kamra Airbase in Attock in the early hours of Thursday. Sources said that up to ten militants were estimated to have attacked the base from Pind Salman Makhan village at around 2:30 am.  According to one source, the attackers were wearing military uniforms when they entered the base. When security officials at the check-post attempted to halt them, the militants opened fire. The report, however, could not be confirmed from official sources.

This is not the first time that Kamra has been the target of a terrorist attack.  On Oct 23, 2009, a suicide bomber blew himself up at the entrance of the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in Kamra. Two security officers and six other people were killed in the attack.
