(Newser) – To take revenge for Osama bin Laden's death, the Pakistani Taliban has threatened to attack the US and its allies. "Soon you will see attacks against America and NATO countries, and our first priorities in Europe will be France and Britain," deputy leader Wali-ur-Rehman says in a video message, adding that 10 targets have been selected. Though the Tehrik-e-Taliban is blamed for many suicide bombings in Pakistan, the only US attack it has claimed responsibility for is last year's botched Times Square car bomb, notes Reuters.
