The Taliban is claiming responsibility for Saturday's suicide car bombing that struck a military housing area in northwest Pakistan, a spokesman for the group said.
The attack, which authorities say killed six Pakistani soldiers and wounded 12, was "revenge" for the killing of the group's fighters, Ihsanullah Ihsan, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, told CNN by telephone.
The attack occurred when the explosive-laden car rammed into a house in the city of Bannu, a senior police official told CNN.
The house is used by Pakistani soldiers to rest and relax, said the police chief, Gul Syed Afridi.
About 100 soldiers were at the house at the time of the explosion, he said.FULL STORY
