ASSISTED SUICIDE BOMBING:

Pakistani Taliban Say U.S. Drone Kills 5 Leaders (Jibran Ahmad, October 27, 2011, IB Times)

A U.S. drone strike Thursday killed five commanders of a powerful Pakistani Taliban faction that attacks Western forces in Afghanistan, one of the group's leaders told Reuters.

The dead commanders belonged to the Maulvi Nazir faction of Pakistan's Taliban, which carries out cross-border attacks from its strongholds in South Waziristan.

The group threatened in June to escalate attacks on U.S.-led NATO troops in Afghanistan in response to intensified drone strikes on its territory.
