Hafiz Saeed speaks at news briefing and mocks US bounty

The founder of Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba has described a $10m (£6.2m) US bounty on his head as "ridiculous and misguided".

Speaking at a news conference, Hafiz Saeed said: "I'd like to ask the US state department why they are offering this bounty to other people. Why don't they give it to me, I can tell them my whereabouts on a daily basis?"
