Pakistan Taliban Leader Killed in Power Struggle


A Pakistan Taliban leader and explosives expert was killed Thursday, in an attack thought to be linked to the announcement earlier this week that a faction of the terror group was breaking off, according to the Cable News Network. The terror leader, Ashiqullah Mehsud, was a senior commander in the former Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). He was killed in a shoot-and-run drive-by attack in the village of Urmuz, in the North Waziristan region bordering Afghanistan.
