Four gunmen, two soldiers die in attack on Indian air base

By late morning it appeared that the violence had ended with the killing of the gunmen by Indian forces. But two hours later, more gunfire erupted and an air force helicopter was seen firing on an area of the base, about 267 miles north of New Delhi.

Air force spokeswoman Rochelle D'Silva said Saturday night that troops were combing the entire base to fully secure it. By 9 p.m., no gunfire had been heard around the base for more than three hours.
