MIRAMSHAH: Pakistani Taliban on Monday claimed responsibility for two recent attacks on Nato supply convoys in Pakistan and threatened to carry out more, a spokesman said.

“We accept responsibility for the attacks on the Nato supply trucks and tankers,” Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Azam Tariq told AFP.

“I am talking about attacks both in Sindh and in Islamabad,” he said in a telephone call from an undisclosed location.

“We will carry out more such attacks in future. We will not allow the use of Pakistani soil as a supply route for Nato troops based in Afghanistan,” he said.

“This is also to avenge drone attacks,” he added. – AFP
