Islamabad: A Pakistani Taliban commander has said his organisation is committed to fight the foreign troops in Afghanistan and capable of hitting targets as far as London, Washington and Paris, the Online news agency reported.

Militant commander Waliur Rehman Mehsud said US President Barrack Obama is "number one enemy" of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and would fight till the US and its allied forces are expelled from Pakistan and Afghanistan.
