PESHAWAR, June 25: Unidentified people fired shots on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight, killing a woman and injuring two crewmembers.

The PIA spokesman, Mashood Tajwar, said the incident took place when a PIA plane was landing at the Peshawar International Airport last night. He said 196 passengers and 10 crewmembers were onboard the plane.

Two years ago, militants attacked the Bacha Khan International Airport with rockets and also blasted an explosive-packed vehicle with the wall. Five militants and four civilians had been killed and about 40 people injured in that attack.

In another incident, armed men attacked the Karachi Airport, killing 23 people including security personnel.
