ISLAMABAD - The official spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban said on Wednesday that the Islamist movement was not behind the deadly attack on a university that killed at least 19 people.

The written statement by spokesman Muhammad Khorasani came hours after a senior Taliban commander said four of his fighters launched the assault on Wednesday at Bacha Khan University in Charsadda in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The reason for the conflicting statements was not immediately clear
