Siege of Karachi airport in Pakistan

June 8 and June 9, 2014

Deaths: At least 28

Twenty-eight people were killed as Pakistan's military fought a 12-hour battle, spread over the night of June 8 and the morning of June 9, with Taliban gunmen who besieged Karachi airport armed with rocket launchers and suicide vests, leaving a nascent peace process in tatters. Ten militants were among the dead, officials said, as Pakistan's biggest city witnessed a return of the kind of spectacular offensive waged before by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) during an insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives.
