Taliban Militants
Islamabad, May 9: After Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Thursday, May 7 addressed the nation saying that Taliban will be eliminated from the North West frontier Province (NWFP) of the country; an unnamed Taliban commander has made a statement that top leaders of the country will now be targeted by the militants.

Enraged by Pakistan's decision to launch an 'all-out war' against them, Taliban has threatened to 'eliminate' the country's top leadership including President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and their close family members.

"We thought that being a member of a religious family, Gilani will support our demand of implementing Sharia in the Malakand division but instead he has announced an all-out war against us, which has angered our commanders as well as fighters," an unnamed Taliban commander told The News.

The commander who reportedly spoke over the phone to the newspaper also said that Benazir Bhutto's tomb too will not be spared.
