Top Al Qaeda leader Shukrijuma killed in Pakistan

Islamabad, Dec 06: Top Al Qaeda leader Adnan el Shukrijuma, carrying a bounty of 5 million dollars on his head for plotting attacks on the US and UK, was reportedly killed early morning in the Shinwarsak region of South Waziristan Agency.

According to Dawn News and a Reuters report from 2010, Shukrijuma was among the five men charged with plotting to bomb the subway system in New York City and attack an unidentified target in Britain under orders from Al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan.

In July 2010, Shukrijumah- a Saudi Arabian native- along with Adis Medunjanin, Abid Naseer, Tariq Ur Rehman, and a fifth man known as "Ahmad," were charged with 10 counts, including conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and to commit murder in a foreign country.

The Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Shukrijuma was killed in the raid after he took refuge in a compound in the area to hide from North Waziristan Agency due to the ongoing Zarb-i-Azb operation, the report said.
