 Afghanistan-Pakistan Al-Qaeda chief 'killed by US drone'

 Updated at: 1823 PST,  Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Afghanistan-Pakistan Al-Qaeda chief  PESHAWAR: Al-Qaeda's operational chief for Afghanistan and Pakistan has been killed in a US drone strike, security officials said Tuesday.

Sheikh Fateh had reportedly been given the job in May after Al-Qaeda's purported number three and Osama bin Laden's one-time treasurer Mustafa Abu al-Yazid was killed.

Pakistani security officials said the Egyptian was killed on Saturday in a US drone strike on North Waziristan.

"Yes, he has been killed," one Pakistani security official said on condition of anonymity.

Two other Pakistani intelligence officials confirmed his death.

"He was head of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan," one official said. Locally, he was known as Abdul Razzaq, the official added.
