Pakistan's Taliban have threatened, in a video released today, to use suicide bombers and snipers to kill former President Pervez Musharraf when he returns home from exile.
In a video obtained by Reuters, Adnan Rasheed, who took part in a previous attempt to assassinate Musharraf, said:
"The mujahideen of Islam have prepared a special squad to send Musharraf to hell. There are suicide bombers, snipers, a special assault unit and a close combat team."
Musharraf angered the Taliban and other groups by embarking on a tougher line on militancy.
