Pakistani Taliban militants have named a hard-liner opposed to peace talks and linked to the shooting of a Pakistani schoolgirl as successor to their leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.
The Pakistani Taliban confirmed the death of their leader in a U.S. drone strike Saturday, a day after he was killed, as the group's leadership council met to begin the process of choosing a successor.
Intercepted militant radio communications indicate the leader of the Pakistani Taliban may have been killed in a recent U.S. drone strike, Pakistani intelligence officials said Sunday. A Taliban official denied that.
Crumbling unity among militants could provide the Pakistani army an opening to conduct a limited offensive against a particularly vicious Taliban group in a strategic tribal region, according to analysts and a senior military official.
Pakistan's Taliban militia is vowing to launch terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe, but they lack the capability to conduct global attacks on their own, according to terrorism specialists.
U.S. officials on Wednesday charged the leader of Pakistan's Taliban with planning violent attacks against American forces in Afghanistan, including last year's suicide bombing that killed seven CIA employees.
The Obama administration on Wednesday put the Pakistani Taliban on its international terrorism blacklist and announced a $5 million reward for information on the group's leaders Hakimullah Mehsud and Wali Ur Rehman.
A week ago, Baitullah Mehsud's successor, Hakimullah Mehsud, told journalists summoned to a briefing in South Waziristan that the Taliban would launch more attacks on military, government and other targets in the country.
No one was seriously wounded, he said.
