Senior al Qaeda figure killed in drone strike

A militant who acted as a senior operations organizer for al Qaeda was targeted and killed in one of two US drone strikes launched against targets inside Pakistan last week, a US official said.
US and Pakistani sources told Reuters that the target of the attack was Aslam Awan, a Pakistani national from Abbottabad, the same town where Osama bin Laden was killed last May by a US commando team.
