ISLAMABAD (AP) - The Pakistani Taliban says it launched the deadly attack at the U.N. food agency's offices in Islamabad because international relief work was not in "the interest of Muslims."
Taliban spokesman Azam Tariq said Tuesday his group targeted the World Food Program because the U.N. and foreign aid groups are "infidels."
The blast at the World Food Program offices Monday killed five people.
Tariq said the Taliban would launch more attacks on Pakistani and U.S. targets.
Earlier, Pakistan's top security official blamed Taliban militants for the deadly suicide bombing.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik says the Taliban carried out the attack to avenge the Aug. 5 slaying of their leader in a U.S. drone attack.
