KARACHI, Pakistan — Gunmen in Pakistan attacked a training facility for airport police near the Karachi airport today, forcing a temporary suspension of flights and triggering a brief shootout with security forces just days after a Taliban assault on the country’s busiest airfield.

Law enforcement personnel managed to quickly repulse the attack by as many as three gunmen, an assault claimed by a resurgent Taliban who warned its violence “wasn’t over yet.”
