A Pakistani man watches a television broadcasting news of top Al-Qaeda leader Adnan El Shukrijumah, in Islamabad on December 6, 2014. Pakistan’s military said it had killed Shukrijumah, a senior Al-Qaeda leader wanted by the US over a 2009 plot to attack the New York subway system. Shukrijumah, one of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists, was hiding in a compound in Shinwarsak, northwestern Pakistan, after fleeing from neighbouring North Waziristan tribal district where the army launched a major operation against militant bases in June, the military said.
