Missile strike kills al-Qaeda top operative in Pakistan

The Kenyan-born chief of al-Qaeda in Pakistan and his second-in-command were killed by a missile fired by a CIA drone in South Waziristan some days ago, according to reports. The chief operative, Usama al-Kini, was thought to be involved in the attack on the Islamabad Marriott last September.
