Suicide bombers’ trainer Qari 
Hussain ‘killed’

ISLAMABAD — The alleged ‘master trainer’ of suicide bombers, Qari Hussain Mehsud, is reported to have been killed in the October 4 US drone attack in Mir Ali town of North Waziristan.

However, Tehrik-i-Taleban Pakistan contradicted reports about Qari Hussain’s death and described it as part of a campaign to demoralise its fighters.

“Qari Hussain is alive and healthy and will soon contact the media,” one of his associates told Dawn on phone.

According to one report, Qari Hussain was injured in the attack on a house in Mir Ali in which eight foreigners, including German militants, were killed.

According to intelligence sources, those killed included Qari Hussain, known as Ustad-i-Fedayeen (teacher of suicide bomber), and his two guards.

They said that Qari Hussain, who was sleeping in the house at the time, was severely injured and taken to Miram Shah where doctors amputated one of his legs and he died there.

Qari Hussain was cousin of TTP chief Hakimullah Mehsud. In the past also there have been reports of his death but he re-surfaced to continue his terror activities
