A British man killed by an air strike in Pakistan had ties with the would-be Times Square bomber, a Pakistani intelligence official said on Wednesday. The official, who declined to be identified, told Reuters the Briton, Abdul Jabbar, had also been in the process of setting up a branch for the Taliban in Britain. He had some links to Faisal Shahzad but the nature of the ties are not clear, the official said, referring to the Pakistani-born US citizen who tried to set off a car bomb in New York's busy Times Square in May. Shahzad was sentenced on Tuesday in a New York court to life in prison.
