Taliban Infighting: Mehsud's Successor Killed
Source: Express Buzz

SOUTH WAZIRISTAN: A Taliban leader was killed by a rival group during a meeting to select a new chief of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in the country's restive South Waziristan region, media reports said.

The members of the group had gathered in the area to select a new leader of the TTP.

However, a fighting broke out between supporters of Hakimullah Mehsud and the faction loyal to Taliban commander Wali-ur-Rehman, Geo TV said Saturday.

Hakimullah Mehsud was killed just after he was appointed TTP chief.

Other media reports said Mehsud was killed by Taliban commander Wali-ur-Rehman, who was injured in the incident.

1. But... but, I thought it was about RELIGION, not POWER.
The fundies are the same all over (but ours are cowards who get old people and the secular, as well as the religiously insane, to fight their battles for them).
