MIRANSHAH: The Pakistani Taliban, which claimed the 2010 Times Square bomb plot, on Tuesday denied anything to do with explosions that killed three people and wounded more than 100 in Boston.

"We believe in attacking US and its allies but we are not involved in this attack," Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP.

"We have no connection to this bombing but we will continue to target them wherever possible," Ehsan added. The Pakistani government said the country was "deeply shocked and saddened" by the Boston attack.

"The government of Pakistan condemns this heinous act of terrorism in the strongest possible terms and hopes that the perpetrators of this barbaric act will be brought to justice," said a statement issued by the foreign ministry.

The TTP is based in Pakistan's northwestern tribal belt on the Afghan border and has been blamed for some of the deadliest suicide attacks in Pakistan.

US President Barack Obama warned against "jumping to conclusions" but a senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said such an attack was "clearly an act of terror".

End.
