ISLAMABAD - Senior al-Qaida operative Ilyas Kashmiri, regarded as one of the most dangerous militants in the world, was killed by a US drone aircraft missile strike in Pakistan, a Pakistani intelligence official and media said on Saturday.

The death of the Pakistani militant was another intelligence coup for the United States after US special forces killed Osama bin Laden in a town close to Islamabad on May 2.

Kashmiri is considered to be a top al-Qaida operative and one of the world's most dangerous and effective militants. He is said to be a former Pakistani military officer. He is high on the US list of most wanted militants. The US Department of State has labeled Kashmiri a "specially designated global terrorist".
