Nine militants and one soldier are killed in an attack on one of Pakistan's largest air bases.
This is one of Pakistan's largest air bases, and the scene of a militant attack on Thursday morning.
Pakistani authorities say Islamists armed with rocket propelled grenades and automatic weapons were behind the assault.
Nine militants and a soldier died during the gun battle which raged for several hours.
Residents living nearby said they heard the fighting in the early hours of the morning.

"At around 2 or 2.15am we heard a lot of firing which was followed by loud explosions. This went on until around 4 in the morning."
The militants are thought to have moved through a nearby village under cover of darkness and climbed a nine foot wall strung with barbed wires to break into the base.
An air force spokesman said the attack was repelled with only one aircraft damaged.
