TTP vow to hit US, Europe

The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan have vowed to attack the United States and Europe, days after the US State Department added the group to a blacklist of foreign terrorist organisations.

“Soon we will target America and Europe, we will take revenge for the drone strikes,” Qari Hussain, a militant commander for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan faction, told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location on Friday.

“(President Barack) Obama and his allies are our enemies — they are afraid of us. We do not care if they have declared us a terrorist group,” he said.
