In the last few weeks the Taliban's overall military commander for
Afghanistan, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who is Mullah Omar's deputy, was
captured in a joint intelligence raid in Karachi by Pakistani and American
agents.


The threat was issued after one of its leaders claimed responsibility for a
suicide car bomb which killed 13 people outside an interrogation centre in
Lahore where militant suspects are questioned.


Eight officials from the Federal Investigation Agency were those killed when
the bomber detonated a Toyota Carolla packed with 1300 pounds of explosives
between the office and a local religious school.


"We have around 3,000 more suicide bombers. We'll target all government
places, buildings and offices," he said in a call to a news agency.

More than 3,000 people were killed in terrorist attacks in Pakistan last year
as suicide bombers and 'fedayeen' commandos struck in Islamabad, Rawalpindi,
Lahore, and Peshawar.
