JPNN|Peshawar | Dec 21, 2014|Al-Qaeda's regional branch today said its heart was "bursting with pain" over the Taliban's massacre at a Pakistan school and urged the militants to target only security forces. The attack on Tuesday killed 149 people mostly children in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar. "Our hearts are bursting

with pain and grief over this incident," Osama Mehmood, spokesman for Al-Qaeda South Asia chapter said in a four-page emailed statement. "There is no doubt that the list of crimes and atrocities of the Pakistani army has crossed the limit and it is true that this army is ahead of everyone in America's slavery and genocide of Muslims. But it does not mean that we should seek revenge from oppressed Muslims," Mehmood said. "The guns that we have taken up against Allah's enemy America and its pet rulers and slave army should not be aimed towards children, women and our Muslim people," he added. Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri announced the creation of the new South Asia branch in September to "wage jihad" in Myanmar, Bangladesh and India. The Afghan Taliban, who are loosely affiliated with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), have also condemned the attack, saying killing innocent children was against Islam. Pakistan described the bloody rampage as its own "mini 9/11", saying it was a game changer in its fight against terror. The army has been waging a major offencive against longstanding Taliban and other militant strongholds in the restive tribal areas on the Afghan border for the last six months. Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
