Osama bin Laden ‘revenge’ attack kills scores in Pakistan

“A double bomb attack on a military training centre in north-west Pakistan has killed at least 80 people in the first militant riposte since US troops killed Osama bin Laden on 2 May.

The Pakistan Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, which ripped through a crowd of recruits at the gates of a Frontier Corps base in Shabqadar, Charsadda district, 22 miles (35km) north of Peshawar.

“This is the retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden. Pakistani and US forces should be ready for more attacks,” a Taliban spokesman told CNN.
