A new breakaway faction of the Pakistani Taliban welcomed Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri's announcement of the launch of a South Asian branch of the terror network.

Zawahiri announced the new "Al-Qaeda in the subcontinent" operation in a video message, saying it would take the fight to Myanmar, Bangladesh and India, which has a large but traditionally moderate Muslim population.

Indian authorities said they were taking the move seriously and put several states on high alert on Thursday.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, spokesman for the new Pakistani Taliban bloc, named Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamat-ul-Ahrar, hailed Zawahiri's call.
