Karachi airport attack a sign of wider security challenges
The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack on Karachi airport, that’s killed at least 28 people, including the ten suicide terrorists.
The militant group says the attack was in revenge for the killing of their leader Hakimullah Mehsud, who died in a US drone strike last year.
The United States has offered to help Pakistan in investigations, but it’s not clear if the offer will be taken up.
So what has led to this huge security lapse in Pakistan’s biggest and most violent city?
