Intel officials: Taliban leader Mehsud dead

Three Pakistani intelligence officials say that Pakistan's Taliban chief has been killed in a CIA missile strike and his body buried. But one of the three says no intelligence agent has actually seen the body.


The officials say Mehsud was killed in Wednesday's missile attack on the home of his father-in-law. They say his body has been buried in the village of Nardusai in South Waziristan, not far from the site of the missile strike. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. (AP)
