The death toll rose to 42 after several wounded men died, said military spokesman Major-General Shaukat Sultan. Pakistan, a major US ally, has been battling militants in its northwest over the past few years. Hundreds of militants and members of the security forces have been killed. A prominent journalist in the area, Rahimullah Yusufzai, said he got a call from a man saying ‘Pakistani Taleban’ carried out the attack in revenge for the Oct. 30 raid on the madrasa. The caller did not identify himself but said the bomber had taped a statement that would soon be released, Yusufzai said.
