Islamabad: Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have claimed responsibility for the killing of a Saudi Arabian diplomat in Karachi.
“We take responsibility. Until America stops chasing Al Qaeda and stops drone strikes we will keep carrying out such attacks,” the Dawn quoted a TTP spokesman, as saying.
Unidentified gunmen had fired at a car belonging to the Saudi Arabian embassy near the Darakhshan police station.
The diplomat had died of multiple bullet wounds on the spot, while the attackers had managed to flee.
A Sindh Home Ministry official had identified the victim as a junior officer at the Saudi Arabian consulate.
