Taliban leader vows attacks on US

The Pakistani Taliban leader warns of attacks in video recordings.

    It has long been suspected that Hakimullah Mehsud, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban, was killed in a missile strike carried out by the US in January. 

    But in a video that appears to have been recorded on April 4, Mehsud calls the US a "terrorist state" and says his fighters will launch attacks on the US. 

    The footage was released just a day after a failed car bomb attempt in New York's Times Square, which another Taliban group has claimed responsibility for.
