Taliban commander alive after attack in Pakistan

KABUL (Reuters) – A relative of Taliban commander Jalaluddin Haqqani was among three people killed in a suspected U.S. drone attack in a Pakistani border village on Monday, but Haqqani and his militant son, Sirajuddin, were not present, a younger son said.

“Haqqani and Sirajuddin were in Afghanistan at the time of the attack. They are alive,” Badruddin, the third son of Haqqani, told Reuters by telephone.

Badruddin said one of his aunts was killed in the attack, and women and children were among the wounded.
