Sky News have put up on their website what they claim is new footage showing the failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad meeting the leader of the Pakistani Taliban:

It shows Shahzad and Hakimullah Mehsud shaking hands and hugging sometime before the failed attack in New York in May.

During the video, Shahzad's voice is also heard.

He says: "Today, along with the leader of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan Hakimullah Mehsud and under the command of Amir al-Mumineen Mullah Mohammed Omar Mujahid (may Allah protect him), we are planning to wage an attack on your side, inshallah."

Last month, in a statement read out in a US court, Shahzad admitted receiving training in Pakistan about how to "wage an attack" in America.

The 30-year-old defendant admitted: "How to make a bomb, how to detonate a bomb.

"I asked them (the Taliban) for some cash because I only had - my cash was like $4,500 that I had with me when I was leaving.

"And I asked for some more cash because I had to do the whole operation here."
