A U.S. drone strike has killed a senior al Qaeda leader in Pakistan's tribal region near the Afghan border, Pakistani intelligence officials said, in the latest blow to the Islamic militant network.
Despite $2 billion in U.S. military aid for an offensive against militants in North Waziristan, Pakistan claims it's too risky to launch an operation against Taliban and al Qaeda operatives in the remote tribal region, after having said for years that a lack of resources had delayed the offensive.
A Pakistani Taliban commander who frequently visits North Waziristan told The Associated Press by telephone that he had met some Arab fighters on Saturday who were "very aggrieved."
Waziristan told The Washington Times that the Haqqanis are feeling the heat for the first time.
