Taliban claim blasts at Pakistan ordnance complex

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for twin suicide blasts outside Pakistan’s main defense industry complex on Thursday which killed about 40 people.

“It was because of what’s happening in Bajaur,” Taliban spokesman Maulvi Omar said by telephone from an undisclosed location, referring to military operations against militants in a northwestern region on the Afghan border.

“If it doesn’t stop we will continue such attacks,” he said.
