Al-Qaeda No. 4 Killed In Pakistan

A missile attack from a U.S. drone aircraft is believed to have killed Khalid Habib, an Egyptian who is described by the CIA as the No. 4 in the Al-Qaida hierarchy, according to a former member of a militant group in the region.

The attack, on the village of Taparghai in Pakistan’s volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, killed four people, some of them Arabs, according to initial Pakistani intelligence reports on Thursday. Habib was in a parked Toyota pickup, the favored vehicle of insurgents, when he was hit by the missile.
