Taliban Lahore, Apr.2 (ANI): Pakistan intelligence agencies have warned that 14 trained militants have entered Lahore and Islamabad to carry out attacks similar to the Manawan police training academy strike.

According to sources, these terrorists are hiding in the cities in the garb of preachers.

The investigative agencies have also asked the concerned authorities to beef up security in and around all government establishments, luxury hotels and other important public places.

Meanwhile, in Peshawar officials said that they have confirmed reports that seven suicide bombers were planning to carry out attacks on the lines of Manawan on government installations in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP).

“We have intelligence that seven suicide bombers have been looking for targets which may be in Peshawar or any other district in the province,” The Daily Times quoted senior government officials, as saying.

These intelligence reports are particularly important because the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan chief Baitullah Mehsud, while claiming the responsibility for the Manawan attack, had also warned of carrying similar strikes in near future. (ANI)
