PESHAWAR - The chief financier of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network, one of the most feared groups fighting US-led forces in Afghanistan, has been shot dead in the Pakistani capital Islamabad, militant sources told Reuters on Monday.

Nasiruddin Haqqani was a son of Jalaluddin Haqqani, a veteran guerrilla commander from southeast Afghanistan who rose to prominence battling occupying Soviet forces in the 1980s.
