The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for a bomb attack on Monday close to Pakistan's military headquarters, as officials said the death toll had risen to nine.

The blast in a market near the heavily-secured HQ in Rawalpindi, neighbouring Islamabad, came a day after a Taliban suicide bomber killed 20 soldiers in an attack in the country's restive northwest.
