Rawalpindi mosque demolished on Prophet Muhammad's orders: Pak Taliban
Rawalpindi, Dec.5 (ANI): The Tehreeke-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has taken responsibility for Friday's ghastly suicide attack on the Parade Lane mosque here, saying the mosque was "demolished on the orders of Prophet Muhammad".
TTP chief Waliur Rehman Mehsud told the BBC that the prime target in the attack were military officers, and warned about more such attacks on army personnel in the near future.
"Our militants attacked the military officers (our primary target) and we will continue to attack the army. The civilians killed in the attack were relatives of army personnel and their deaths did not matter," Mehsud said.
At least 39 people were killed and 45 others injured in the suicide attack carried out by three attackers.
According to media reports, two-star generals were among the people killed in the attack.
The Dawn reported that a colonel also died in the attack while several senior military officers, including a former vice army chief, retired general Mohammad Yousuf, were among the injured. (ANI)
