LONDON: An al-Qaeda trainer and explosives specialist Abu Suleiman al-Jazairi, involved in a range of European terrorist networks has been killed in Pakistan, the latest senior militant to die in a US missile strike in Pakistanís Bajaur tribal district, a British newspaper has claimed.
Al-Jazairi, thought to have been 45, died along with at least 15 others when the house in which he was staying in Pakistan's Bajaur tribal district was hit by a missile fired from a Predator, an American pilotless drone.
The house targeted and destroyed by the drone is believed to belong to a former Afghan Taliban defence minister, Maulvi Obaidullah, members of whose family, including women and children, are thought to have died.
CIA chief Michael Hayden has cited the death of Abu as a big success in operations against Al-Qaeda.
