Taliban militants take responsibility for attacks on Pakistani Shiites

ISLAMABAD — Taliban militants Thursday took responsibility for three attacks on Shiite Muslim gatherings in Pakistan that killed at least 18 people and injured another 50.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the Pakistani militant outfit, said the Shiites were targeted as they “insult” the Muslim prophet Muhammad and the Quran, their holy book.

“We take responsibility for the attacks at both the places (in Rawalpindi and Karachi),” Ehsan said in a statement.

“We will continue to achieve our targets, irrespective of security measures taken by (the Pakistani Interior Minister) Rehman Malik,” he said.
