Islamabad, Jan.30 (ANI): Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud has told the Al Jazeera television channel that he wants to destroy the White House, New York and London.
In his first-ever television interview that lasted 25 minutes, Mehsud was quoted by the Daily Times as saying: Our primary aim is to finish Britain [and] the US, and to crush the pride of the non-Muslims.
Baitullah Mehsud told Admad Zaidan, Al Jazeeras bureau chief in Islamabad, at an undisclosed location that President Pervez Musharraf was working for the interests of the non-believers.
He said his coalition would fight back and teach him (Musharraf) a lesson.
Mehsud was recently chosen the leader of a militant coalition named the Taliban Movement of Pakistan, a collection of 40 groups that have come together to battle the Pakistani army. (ANI)
