Taliban in Pakistan denied on Tuesday it was involved in the killing of a Saudi diplomat in Pakistan's largest city on Monday, Al-Arabiya TV reported on Tuesday.

The Dubai-based TV did not give more details. Saudi consulate staffer Hassan al-Qahtani was killed in a motorbike shot by gunmen as he was driving in Karachi.

No group has claimed its responsibility for the killing of the Saudi diplomat, which came days after the killing of Osama bin Laden in a raid by a special US force in Pakistan.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was believed to have a close link to al-Qaida.
