Al-Qaeda chemical expert ‘killed’
Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar has been reported killed before
Reports from Pakistan say a leading al-Qaeda chemical weapons expert, Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, has been killed in a missile strike.
Taleban officials in the tribal area of South Waziristan confirmed to the BBC that he was killed in a missile strike that left at least six people dead.
The US, which has a reward of $5m on his head, said it had no information.
He was wrongly reported to have been killed in 2006 in a strike aimed at al-Qaeda deputy head Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Khabab may be most remembered for his experiments with chemical weapons. In video that shocked a world grown somewhat used to terrorism, the AQ terrorist exposed dogs to chemicals used for weapons and watched them die horrible deaths.
Well, err, I’m not the least surprised: why being good to animals if you aren’t good to humans?
