Pakistani Taliban chief Mulla Fazalullah killed?

Islamabad: Even as the Pakistani Army intensified its anti-terrorism operations in the wake of Tuesday`s Taliban attack on a Peshawar school that left 148 students and teachers dead, unconfirmed reports said that Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) chief Mulla Fazalullah was killed in an airstrike inside Afghanistan early Saturday.

An unverified Twitter account of the Pakistan defence ministry stated early Saturday: "News of Fazlullah`s killing is being confirmed by Ministry of Defence."

However, according to sources, only the director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations is authorised to issue statements related to terror strikes.

The Army has been waging a major offensive against the Taliban and other militant strongholds in the restive tribal areas along the Afghan border for the last six months.
