Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud, who was believed killed in January, vowed attacks on the United States in a new video dated early April, the SITE monitoring group said on Monday.

"The time is very near when our fidaeen (soldiers) will attack the American states in the major cities," Mehsud said in the Internet video alleged to have been made on April 4, SITE reported.

Mehsud was reported to have been killed in a US bombing raid in January, but some reports last week quoted Pakistani intelligence officials as saying he had survived the strike.

Another video allegedly from Mehsud's Tehreek-e-Taliban claimed it was behind an attempted car bombing in New York at the weekend, although the credibility of the claim has been questioned.
