Pakistani Taliban threatens Burma

Myanmar  has been threated with attacks by an umbrella group of the Pakistani Taliban over its treatment of Rohingya Muslims in the western area of Burma.

The spokesperson said attacks to avenge crimes against the Rohingya will begin, the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) said in a statement on Thursday, unless Pakistan halts all relations with the Burmese government and shuts the country's embassy in Islamabad. TTP told Muslims in Burma, “We will take revenge of your blood.”

A Taliban spokesman, Ehsanullah Ehsan, demanded that the Pakistani government halt intra-national relations and close Burma's embassy.

“Otherwise we will not only attack Burmese interests anywhere but will also attack the Pakistani fellows of Burma one by one,” he said in a statement.

The number of people allowed to cross the border per day will be increased from 1,000 to 1,500. Hamas is the ruling party in the Gaza Strip and an offshoot of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood.
