Taliban threaten to hit more installations

A top Taliban commander has threatened to carry out attacks on nine more key installations across Pakistan similar to the attack on PNS Mehran base in Karachi in order to avenge the death of Osama bin Laden. “The revenge game has already been started from Pakistan.
The attack on Mehran Naval Base in Karachi was the first in the line of 10 that the Taliban have planned to avenge the death of bin Laden,” Waliur Rehman, head of the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) in South Waziristan, told Al-Arabiya in an interview. “Nine more attacks of the same intensity have been planned on equally important installations,” said Rehman, who carries a reward of $600,000 on his head and figures on the US list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists.
Describing the Pakistan Army as “a US puppet”, he said the Taliban planned fighting for at least another eight years against the security forces. Rehman, who was speaking from Shawal, a border town between South and North Waziristan, also threatened to carry out attacks against American, British and French targets. “Soon you will see attacks against America and NATO countries, and our first priorities in Europe will be France and Britain,” he added.
