An attack on a Pakistani army checkpost has killed at least 35 people - the attackers were well-armed gunmen using rocket-propelled grenades, automatic weapons and suicide vests. The Pakistani Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack and said the checkpost was targeted in retaliation for the death of two of their commanders who were killed in airstrikes by unmanned US drones. They say Pakistan is complicit in these attacks. Al Jazeera's Imran Khan reports from Islamabad. Published on Feb 2, 2013
