KARACHI, Pakistan (CNN) -- Terrorists entered Karachi's Jinnah International Airport at two different spots with a big plan: to destroy a group of parked airplanes and "bring down our aviation industry," according to the Pakistani government.

It was late Sunday night, and the militants were armed with guns, grenades and suicide vests. They went into the cargo area, about a kilometer (0.62 miles) from where commercial planes take off.
