Pakistani security forces on Monday declared victory over attackers who besieged a police academy, firing into the air in jubilation, an AFP reporter witnessed. At least three bearded men in vests put their hands in the air and surrendered to the small group of armed security forces and commandos on the rooftop of the main academy building just outside the city of Lahore. The forces shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greater), flashed V for victory signs and pumped bullets into the air, a traditional sign of celebration, nearly eight hours after attackers stormed the compound. Ambulances, which had lined up outside the police academy, started to enter the training ground within minutes of the declared victory.
