Pakistani Taliban confirms leader’s death in U.S. drone strike

31st May 2013

ISLAMABAD, (Xinhua): Pakistani Taliban confirmed that their deputy chief Waliur Rehman was killed in a U.S. drone strike on Wednesday and also withdrew their peace dialogue offer to the new government, local media reported Thursday.

Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told the media from an undisclosed location that Taliban would take revenge of the killing of their deputy chief.

He alleged that the Pakistani government shared information about the Taliban with the Americans and that is why they have decided to cancel the talks offer.

Waliur Rehman was killed along with several other militants when U.S. spy aircraft fired missiles on a compound near Miran Shah, the headquarters of North Waziristan.

He said the drone strikes have rendered the Taliban dialogue offer as useless and that is why the Taliban central council has decided to completely cancel their peace dialogue offer to the new government.

Taliban circles said that slain Wali-ur-Rehman, 42, was a strong supporter of dialogue to end violence in Pakistan.
