The Pakistani Taliban took credit for a bombing at a gas station in Faisalabad Tuesday that killed at least 20 people, injured more than 100 others and turned cars and buildings into rubble. They said they had been targeting the local office of Pakistan’s spy agency; the bomb did cause damage to the offices of the state-run airline.
