Hakimullah Mehsud likely killed by drone attack

In a major development, it is more than likely that  leader of the Pakistani Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsud, has been killed in a drone strike

BBC quoting a high-ranking Taliban official has aired the news.

The strike targeted a vehicle used by Mehsud with four missiles in the north-western region of North Waziristan. Mehsud became leader of the Pakistani Taliban in 2009, aged 30, after Baitullah Mehsud died in a US drone strike at his father-in-law's residence in South Waziristan.

In the meanwhile, Pakistan's government has issued a statement strongly condemning the drone attack, saying such strikes were a "violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

It may be added that whenever there are arrangements to talk to Taliban by Pakistan, drone attacks are unleashed and kill some high profile Taliban leader to sabotage the peace talks.
