Taliban video claims suicide attacks in Pakistan
PESHAWAR: Taliban militants on Sunday released a rare video of statements from purported suicide bombers and footage of deadly attacks they claimed to have perpetrated in Pakistan.

The 40-minute tape shows men and youths, some apparently in their teens, addressing the camera about their intention to carry out suicide attacks to background music of Urdu-language militant anthems.

The video was handed out to reporters in the provincial metropolis by militant commander Qari Hussain, also known as “Ustad-e-Fidaeen”, who is based in South Waziristan. All those featured on the video spoke Pashto.

The two biggest attacks claimed on the video were a double truck bombing last March against the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) building in Lahore and bombing an office of the Inter-Services Intelligence in 2007.

At least 87 people, including government and security personnel, were killed in those attacks and two others also claimed on the tape. “I’m going to do this suicide bombing with Islamic sentiments,” says someone who gave his name only as Masood.

“Suicide bombers are the atomic weapons of Muslims because Muslims do not have the latest weapons to fight enemies who are committing atrocities against Muslims in Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq,” the terrorist said.
