Peshawar, Pakistan. The Pakistani Taliban has set up a page on Facebook to recruit enthusiasts to write for a quarterly magazine and to edit video, a spokesman confirmed on Friday.

The Umar Media TTP page, which has more than 270 likes, appears to have been created in September and has just a handful of messages written in English.

“Umar Media is proud to announce online jobs oppertunities [sic],” says the first post on the networking website, written on Oct. 25.

“Job discription [sic] is video editing, translations, sharing, uploading, downloading and collection of required data,” it says, giving an e-mail address and asking readers to “plz spread it. This fb account ma be deleted.”

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan confirmed to AFP by telephone on Friday that the faction was “temporarily” using the page “to fulfil its requirements” before launching its own website.
