Pakistani Taliban avenges death of its leader by staging wave of attacks on military.

    A week after the Pakistani Taliban vowed to avenge the death of their former leader, Baitullah Mehsud, they have delivered on their promise, staging a wave of attacks across the country. 

    The latest incident saw a paramilitary convoy coming under attack but, as in many cases, civilians made up the majority of the more than 40 killed.
