Hakeemullah appears in video, vows painful blow to US

KABUL/LAHORE: Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Hakeemullah Mehsud appeared in a video on Monday threatening attacks against the US three months after American and Pakistani officials believed he had died in a US missile strike.

Hakeemullah’s emergence occurred as a suicide bomber attacked the gate of a CIA base where seven agency employees were killed last December.

A video posted on terrorist websites and broadcast by a TV channel showed Hakeemullah seated between two masked, armed men, speaking in Pashto with English subtitles, AP reported. “Praise be to God, on the 4th day of April 2010, I give good news to the Muslim world about being alive and healthy,” he said.

He said Taliban fighters “have penetrated the terrorist America” and will “give extremely painful blows to the fanatic America”. He also warned Washington’s NATO allies that “you will face even worse humiliation, destruction and defeat than America itself”. Hakeemullah warned that his movement would soon retaliate against the US for the many Muslim leaders “martyred” in attacks.
