 Updated at: 1930 PST,  Friday, October 15, 2010
Drone kills wanted TTP operative in NWA MIRAMSHAH: Qari Hussain, most wanted man associated with banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, has been killed in a US drone strike in North Waziristan, intelligence sources confirmed on Friday.

Qari Hussain was one of the main TTP operatives who was an expert in preparing explosives-filled suicide jackets besides training men and children to execute suicide attacks.

According to intelligence sources, a US drone fired two missiles on a house in Dattakhel area of North Waziristan on October 2. Initially it had been reported that the attack killed German nationals but now the same sources have confirmed that Qari Hussain, a TTP mastermind of suicide attacks, was taken out along with his five Turk companions.

Qari Hussain was said to have been involved in 95 per cent terrorist activities inside Pakistan.

In 2009 a head money of Rs50 million was put on Qari Hussain whose trained terrorists carried out dozens of terrorists acts, unleashing great devastation in Pakistan.
