Pakistan army kills al-Qaeda commander

A high-level al-Qaeda leader who was wanted in the US over a bomb plot, has been killed during a raid in Pakistan’s tribal region, according to Pakistan’s military.

Adnan Shukrijumah was killed along with two other suspected fighters in South Waziristan early on Saturday, the Pakistani military said in a statement.

One Pakistani soldier died while another was critically injured in the operation, the statement said.

A Guyanese national who was born in Saudi Arabia, Shukrijumah is believed to have been al-Qaeda’s external-operations chief, although it is not clear whether he was still in that role at the time of his death.
