ISLAMABAD - A drone strike in Pakistan this week killed three al-Qaida operatives who ran a training camp in neighboring Afghanistan to prepare militants for attacks including this week's jail break in Pakistan, a Taliban commander said on Wednesday.

About 30 militants and more than 200 other inmates escaped from the Dera Ismail Khan jail after a squad of highly trained Taliban fighters armed with grenade launchers and dressed as police overran the facility in the early hours of Tuesday.

A day earlier, a US drone strike killed six militants in Pakistan's North Waziristan - a mountainous haven for militant groups aligned with the Taliban and al-Qaida, according to local security officials.
