Islamabad, October 13: Angered by the coverage of its attempt to assassinate teenage rights activist Malala Yousufzai, the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has drawn up plans to target Pakistani and international media organisations across the country.

Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud has issued “special directions” to his subordinates in different cities of Pakistan to target media groups, BBC Urdu reported.

An unnamed Interior Ministry official said intelligence agencies had intercepted a phone conversation between Mehsud and a subordinate named Nadeem Abbas alias Intiqami, in which the Taliban chief was heard directing Abbas to attack media organisations.

Mehsud directed Abbas to target offices of media groups in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad and other cities.
