TTP Commander Asmatullah Shaheen reported killed in North Waziristan firing

PESHAWAR: A key member of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan's shura, Asmatullah Shaheen Bhittani, was reportedly killed on Monday along with three others when unidentified gunmen opened fire on a vehicle in Ghulam Khan Tehsil of the North Waziristan tribal area. Shaheen was a member of the TTP’s top council and was the leader of the Bhittani tribe, had a $160,000 bounty on his head. The government entered into talks with the TTP earlier this month aimed at ending their seven-year insurgency. However the banned group continued carrying out attacks on a near-daily basis, and the dialogue was suspended last week after the insurgents claimed they had executed 23 kidnapped soldiers.
