A senior Pakistani Taliban commander says the group carried out a suicide attack against a paramilitary camp in Islamabad that killed eight members of the security force.

Hakimullah Mehsud, a deputy to Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud, says his group will carry out two suicide attacks per week in Pakistan like the one in Islamabad on Saturday.

Hakimullah warned last week that his group would attack Islamabad in retaliation for US drone missile strikes against militants in Pakistan near the Afghan border.

The Pakistani Taliban deputy spoke to The Associated Press by phone on Sunday.
