0

PESHAWAR: Pakistani police arrested hundreds of people on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after gunmen opened fire on a passenger plane during its landing approach, as fighter jets hit militant targets in the latest round of an anti-Taliban offensive. The attack at Peshawar airport in the country’s northwest killed a female passenger and wounded two crew, and will raise further questions about aircraft safety in Pakistan. The Pakistan International Airlines flight, landing in Peshawar from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, came under fire late on Tuesday as it descended with more than 170 passengers on board.
