Suicide bombers carrying rockets attacked an airport in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Saturday, leaving nine dead and dozens more injured. Three rockets were fired at the airport and a car bomb was set off outside, leaving four civilians and five militants dead, while 36 were injured, including six women and three children. The city is a main hub for al Qaeda and Taliban fighters and has sustained attacks previously. The airport serves both civilians and the government’s air force—which was the main target of the attack.
