PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack on a US consulate convoy in Peshawar on Friday that killed one Pakistani and wounded 10.

One American in one of the vehicles was also lightly wounded.

"The diplomatic staff of all NATO countries are our targets," said Ehsanullah Ehsan, a Taliban spokesman, told Reuters via telephone from an undisclosed location.

"We will continue such attacks. Pakistan is our first target, and America is our second."
