Islamabad, Nov 28 (PTI) The banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Monday called off an indefinite ceasefire agreed with the government in June and ordered its militants to carry out attacks across the country.

"As military operations are ongoing against mujahideen (militants) in different areas […] so it is imperative for you to carry out attacks wherever you can in the entire country," the militant group said in a statement.

The statement was issued a day after the English cricket team landed in Pakistan after 17 years to play the first test-series, and day before the new army chief was set to assume his office.
