The Pakistani military said on Saturday they killed a top al-Qaida operative wanted in the United States for planning to bomb the New York subway system.

"In an intelligence borne operation, top al-Qaeda leader Adnan el Shukrijuma was killed by (the) Pakistan Army in an early morning raid in Shinwarsak, South Waziristan today," the statement said. The remote region borders Afghanistan.

Shukrijumah is wanted in the United States for conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and to commit murder in a foreign country.
