Leaders of Al Qaida Killed in Pakistan.
September 9, 2008
Al Jazeera reports that three leaders of "Al Qaida" were killed in Pakistan by an air strike on Monday. A drone allegedly fired a rocket on a compound and thus killed 25 people including the leaders. Several people were wounded including the sister-in-law of Jallaluddin Haqqani, a Taliban leader. The attacked compound is next to a Madras found by Haqqani. He was the defence minister of the Taliban during the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan.
Three days ago a new president was "elected" in Pakistan after the former president Musharraf was forced to resign. A few days earlier the US conducted a ground attack inside Pakistan.
