Drone strike that killed Taliban leader 'scuttles' US peace efforts with the Taliban, Pakistani interior minister states

The Pakistani interior minister Saturday accused the United States of "scuttling" efforts towards peace talks with the Taliban by killing the militants' leader in a drone strike.

Chaudhry Nisar said "every aspect" of Pakistan's cooperation with Washington would be reviewed following Friday's drone attack that killed Hakimullah Mehsud in the country's tribal northwest.
