Govt mulls relocation of naval base after attack
KARACHI Pakistan said on Wednesday it was considering whether to relocate its Karachi naval air base after a Taliban attack killed 10 security personnel and destroyed two US-made surveillance aircraft.
Sunday’s assault was the worst on a military base since the army headquarters was besieged in October 2009, further embarrassing the armed forces three weeks after Osama bin Laden was found living under their noses.

“When the Mehran base was established 36 years ago it was far from the population.
But now it is surrounded by civilian populations on all sides, thus the security risks have multiplied,” said navy spokesman Commander Salman Ali.
