A dreaded militant commander linked to the Jaish-e-Moham-med and Tehrike Taliban Pakistan, with Rs 15 million on his head, is believed to be among dozens of militants killed in US drone strikes in the restive Khyber Agency last week, TV news channels said Monday. Ibne Amin, a militant leader from the Swat valley, is believed to have been killed in the first US drone attack carried out in the Khyber tribal region on Thursday. Amin began his career with the Jaish-e-Mohammed and joined the Tehreek-e-Taliban in 2007. He was known as an expert bomb maker and had been accused of involvement in the kidnapping and killing of several government officials and security personnel. He was also close to Maulana Fazlullah, the chief of the Taliban in Swat, and a member of the local 'shura or council of the militants in that region. Amin had a hand in the recent kidnapping of two Chinese engineers and a government official and was blamed for beheading four Pakistan Army commandos abducted in Swat. The federal govt had offered a bounty of Rs 15 million for Amin in May 2009. A senior commander of the banned Lashkar-e-Islam told the media that Amin was killed with six of his bodyguards when a drone targeted his vehicle in Spindrand area of Khyber Agency, some 4km southeast of the Afghan border. Amin, who was less than 40 years old, became a feared commander when he started torturing and killing opponents of the Taliban in Swat. At one time, it was said he was the most powerful man in the Taliban in Swat after Fazlullah. The media quoted intelligence sources as saying that Amin also had links with al Qaeda. The Khyber Agency witnessed four US drone attacks last week in which over three dozen militants from the Lashkar-e-Islam and Taliban were killed. Reports said Amin was in Khyber Agency to bring together various factions of the Lashkar-e-Islam. Meanwhile, al-Qaeda is reportedly looking for what are being called white jihadis, to launch a terror attack in Europe, 'The Sunday Times has reported. The deaths of two British militants in a drone attack in Pakistans tribal region last week, have raised fears of western Muslim converts being used by al-Qaeda in its search for white jihadis to mount Mumbai-style attacks in Europe. Reports say Ilyas Kashmiri, who was recently named al-Qaedas Chief Military strategist in Pakistan and Afghanistan, had been assigned to bring western recruits into the organisation.
