The Taliban said Tuesday they would continue to target Pakistani security forces with suicide attacks as they claimed responsibility for the latest blast that killed 19, its spokesman said. We are targeting Pakistani security forces because the government has allowed America to launch drone attacks on us, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Azam Tariq told a foreign news agency by telephone. Rather it is on the Pakistan governments behest that drone attacks target us, he said. We will continue suicide attacks on security forces. Civilians should avoid proximity with them. Tariq claimed responsibility for Mondays suicide attack on a police station in Lakki Marwat in which 19 people were killed. We carried out the Lakki Marwat suicide attack, Tariq said, adding that the Taliban regretted the killing of schoolchildren in the attack.
