US strike in Pakistan kills wanted British militant (Simon Cameron-Moore, 22 November 2008, Independent)

Rashid Rauf, a British militant with al Qaeda links, was killed along with an Egyptian by a suspected US missile strike in a Pakistani tribal region today, Pakistan television and intelligence officers said.

Rauf, the suspected ringleader of a 2006 plot to blow up trans-atlantic airliners using liquid explosives, was among five victims of an attack believed to have been launched by a U.S. pilotless drone aircraft in the North Waziristan tribal region.


Victims?
