Pakistan Base in al-Qaida Hunt Attacked

Attackers fired three rockets at a small airport being used as a base by Pakistani troops hunting for al-Qaida and Taliban fugitives, but there were no injuries or damages, a military official said Sunday. The attack happened late Friday in Bannu, about 155 miles southwest of the capital Islamabad, said Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan, a military spokesman. There was no claim of responsibility, and Sultan said the military was trying to determine who might have carried out the attack. “We are ascertaining details of the attack,” he said.
