US says Pakistani Taliban 'behind NY incident'

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday that the Pakistani Taliban was "behind the attempted Times Square car bombing in New York."

We've now developed "evidence" that show the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack, Holder said in an interview on ABC television's "This Week."

Holder said there was nothing to suggest that the government of Pakistan was aware that Faisal Shahzad, 30, a naturalized American citizen born in Pakistan, intended to make the attempt.

Shahzad was arrested last Monday, two days after authorities say he parked a crude car bomb in New York's busy Times Square.
