    The newly appointed head of al-Qaeda in Pakistan and two other alleged al-Qaeda commanders have been reported killed in a missile attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan region.

    If confirmed the news would prove a boost to the US administration which is conducting a war in neigbouring Afghanistan, but residents say the attack also killed over 25 people, some of whom were children.
