Pak Taliban say US will 'burn'
Pakistani Taliban militants have warned America that it will soon "burn" while calling for Pakistan's rulers to be overthrown for following "America's agenda".
The United States is convinced Pakistani Taliban militants allied with al-Qaeda and operating out of north-western Pakistani border regions were behind an attempted car-bomb attack in New York's Times Square on May 1.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attempted bombing. If confirmed, it would be the first time their members were involved in an attempted attack in the West.
A Pakistani Taliban spokesman, in a video message obtained by Reuters, repeated a claim of responsibility, saying:
"The movement proved what America could not have even imagined ... It was just an explosive-laden vehicle which did not explode.
