CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the failed car bomb attack in Times Square in New York City.
In 1 minute video allegedly released by the Pakistani Taliban, the group says
the attack is revenge for the death of its leader Baitullah Mehsud and the recent
killings of the top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq. Images of the slain militants are
shown as an unidentified voice recites the message. English subtitles are at the
bottom of the screen.
