Taliban in Pakistan Threaten 2 Attacks per Week

A suicide bombing in a crowded Shiite mosque in Pakistan killed 22 people Sunday. The bombing further illustrates how the U.S.-allied nation is finding itself unable to combat al-Qaida and Taliban fighters.
The bombing follows an announcement by the Pakistani Taliban commander that the group would maintain two attacks per week in the country until the U.S. stops its missile strikes on Pakistani territories.

The attack came only a day after another deadly Taliban suicide bombing, this time in Islamabad, something which has become almost routine in Pakistan.
