Pakistani Taliban claim killing of Saudi diplomat - 16th May 2011

Pakistan's al-Qaida-linked Taliban said on Monday they killed a Saudi Arabian diplomat in the Pakistani city of Karachi.

"We take responsibility," a Taliban spokesman said by telephone from an undisclosed location, referring to the killing of the diplomat earlier in the day.

"Until America stops chasing al-Qaida and stops drone strikes we will keep carrying out such attacks," he said, referring to U.S. attacks with pilotless aircraft on militants in northwest Pakistan.
