Pakistani Taliban Claim Responsibility for Airport Attack

Hosted by

A gunfight at Pakistan's busiest civilian airport raged for six hours, as live TV coverage showed explosions and a blazing fire near aircraft parked on the ground. Twenty-eight people reportedly were killed. When it was over, the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility and called it vengeance against a CIA drone that killed a Taliban leader last November. Jon Boone, Pakistan correspondent for the Guardian, joins us from Islamabad.
