ISLAMABAD - The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility on Monday for a brazen attack on a Karachi naval base that has claimed five lives and destroyed naval aircraft, saying the carnage was to avenge the death of Osama bin Laden.

"It was the revenge of martyrdom of Osama bin Laden. It was the proof that we are still united and powerful," Ehsanullah Ehsan told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.
