Pakistani Taliban leader is said to be alive

Hakimullah Mehsud is said to avoid the US attack

In brief: Pakistani security officials claim Hakimullah Mehsud to escape US drone attack.

Despite the fact that information about the possible death of Pakistani Taliban leader appeared on Pakistani TV, Pakistani security officials claim Hakimullah Mehsud to be alive. Though there is a possibility that he could be wounded in the US attack.

The US launched a drone attack targeted at the religious school, which is considered a training base of Pakistani extremists. Approximately 13 extremists have been killed in the attack, according to Pakistani security officials. The US believe that such tactics could be considered successful to fight with Pakistani extremists.

However, the Pakistani officials voice strong critics to such actions, saying that these attacks will only strengthen the support of Taliban among the people.
