New Taliban Chief named in Pakistan

It appears the goat humping Jihadikazes in Pakistan may have a new leader...

The announcement was made by Maulvi Faqir Mohammad, the deputy of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), or Pakistani Taliban Movement, on Saturday.

Mohammad said that Hakimullah Mehsud had been unanimously appointed by the movement’s shura (council) as successor to Baitullah Mehsud at a meeting in north Pakistan on Friday.

Mehsud is believed to have been killed in a US missile strike earlier this month in the South Waziristan tribal district bordering Afghanistan. But Taliban commanders say Mehsud survived the attack but is seriously ill.

"Baitullah is alive but he is seriously sick," Mohammad said, adding: "God forbid if Baitullah is dead, Hakimullah will be his successor." (Al Jazeera)
