Pakistani Taliban confirmed on Monday that its senior commander was killed in a United States drone strike in the country's North Waziristan tribal region last week and said they had appointed a new deputy to take his place. Pakistan had offered joint investigation into the Kabul's attacks that Kabul had blamed on the Haqqani Network.

Mehsud was deputy leader of the banned Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the main faction of the hardline Islamist Pakistani Taliban.
