Security forces are searching Karachi for gunmen following an attack on a training facility near the airport. A group of gunmen on motorbikes opened fire on the academy run by the Airports Security Force (ASF). Pakistan's Taliban has claimed responsibility. It's their second attack in the area since an all night siege on the country's busiest airport which left 30 people dead. So far, no casualties have been reported from the academy attack. The news prompted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to call for a review of the security situation in the country. Earlier in the day, his forces were ordered to bomb Taliban strongholds along the border.
