Friday, 08 November 2013 - 18:09


The Pakistani Taliban has promised a wave of revenge attacks against the government a day after naming Mullah Fazlullah as its new leader.

Fazlullah, the man behind the attack on teenage activist Malala Yousafzai, was chosen after the US killed the group's previous chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, in a drone strike.

The group said its offensive "will target security forces, government installations, political leaders and police".
