AQ Bombmaker Killed by Pakistanis

MIRAN SHAH, Pakistan - A high-ranking member of the al-Qaida terrorist network was killed in a Pakistani army helicopter gunship attack on a remote village in western Pakistan, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News on Thursday.

Mohsin Musa Matawalli Atwah was among as many as 14 suspected militants who were killed in the attack in the North Waziristan tribal region village of Anghar Kalai, near the Afghan border, the officials told NBC News.
Count on local Islamists re-staging the scene and claiming that everybody killed was an innocent attending a peaceful prayer meeting by the time the Press or their stringers get there.
