KARACHI, Feb 2 : Two demonstrators were shot dead and several more were wounded at Karachi's international airport on Tuesday when clashes broke out between security forces and staff from the national airline protesting privatisation plans, officials said. Police and paramilitary rangers deployed tear gas and water cannon against the protesters from Pakistan International Airlines after they blocked the main entrance to Karachi's Jinnah International Airport around midday.  
Gunfire later erupted, although the source of the shots was unclear. Both law enforcement agencies denied they had shot at protesters. A spokeswoman for Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center, told AFP the hospital had received a total of 10 wounded, one of whom later died.     ?AFP
