Authorities Find Anti-Aircraft Guns In House Under Flight
An aircraft ferrying Pakistan
President Gen. Pervez Musharraf came under fire Friday as it took
off from an air base near Islamabad.
Security officials in Rawalpindi, a garrison city adjacent to
the capital, said two anti-aircraft guns and a light machine gun
were later seized from a home underneath the flight path used at
the base, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The pattern is also used by commercial planes arriving and
departing Islamabad International Airport.
Officials weren't sure if the apparent assassination attempt was
connected to a siege now underway by Pakistani troops against a
radical mosque in Islamabad. That action, which began Tuesday, has
claimed at least 19 lives.
