JPNN| Sajjad Hussain | Islamabad | Jan 10, 2015| A splinter group of Pakistani Taliban today claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on a Shia Mosque in garrison city of Rawalpindi. The Jamatul Ahrar faction, which parted ways with the main Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) last year, said that it orchestrated the attack on the Mosque-cum-community centre last night in which eight people were killed and 16 injured. "We claim responsibility for the attack on the Rawalpindi Imambargah and we will continue such attacks in future," the group's spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan claimed in a message sent to media houses. The bomber attacked the the Mosque-cum-community centre at about 9.30 PM last night when a religious congregation was on in densely populated Chittian Hatian area of the city. The attacker came on a motorbike and tried to enter the compound but set off the bomb near the gate when he was stopped by volunteers deployed at the entrance. Investigations are on, but no arrest has been made so far. 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.
