Pakistani Taliban claim responsibility for New York shooting

PAKISTANI Taliban leader Baituallah Mehsud claimed today responsibility for an attack on the US civic association building in New York in which at least 13 people were killed, according to the private Geo TV.

"I accept responsibility. They were my men. I gave them orders in reaction to US drone attacks," Mehsud told some journalists by telephone from an undisclosed location.

He claimed that one Pakistani and another unidentified man launched the attack and he warned the attack several days ago.

"Such attacks will continue. It was revenge to US drone attacks (in Pakistan) and brutalities in Palestine," he said.
