The Pakistani Taliban on Friday denied any involvement in a twin suicide bombing on an Islamic shrine in Lahore which killed 42 people and wounded 175 others. "We are not responsible for these attacks, this is a conspiracy by foreign secret agencies, you know we do not attack public places," Azam Tariq, a spokesman for Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location. "We condemn this brutal act. Our target is very clear and we only attack police, army and other security personnel," he added. No-one has claimed responsibility for Thursday night's attack on the shrine to a Sufi saint in Lahore, a cultural hub considered a playground for Pakistan's elite and home to many military and intelligence top brass.
