PAKISTAN - The army regained control of a base under attack by Islamists

"The war of nerves lasted seventeen hours," as the newspaper of Karachi. On 23 May, the army had to fight hard to regain control of a naval air station in the city - one of the best kept in the country - overrun by the Taliban who claimed to want revenge on bin Laden. The attackers were yet six. "If the matter were not so serious, we might believe immersed in a black comedy film," quipped the newspaper.

Four attackers were killed and ten soldiers.
