KARACHI (AFP) - The second attack on Pakistan's Karachi Airport in as many days has ended, a spokesman for the Airport Security Force (ASF) said, adding that the two gunmen involved had escaped.

"It was not such a big attack, two people came towards the ASF checkpost and started firing," Colonel Tahir Ali told reporters.

"They ran away after the firing and because we are on high alert, under the standard operating procedure we called in (paramilitary) rangers and the army."

Damaged vehicles are left on the tarmac of Jinnah International Airport, after Sunday's attack by Taleban militants, in Karachi on June 10, 2014. The second attack on Pakistan's Karachi Airport in as many days has ended, a spokesman for the Airport Security Force (ASF) said, adding that the two gunmen involved had escaped. -- PHOTO: REUTERS
