    Don't you just love US know how and technology?

    Al-Qaeda number three 'killed by CIA spy plane' in Pakistan
    (Filed: 04/12/2005)

    Al-Qaeda's third-ranking leader has been killed by a missile fired by an American drone in Pakistan, near the Afghan border, NBC television news reported yesterday.

    Egyptian-born Abu Hamza Rabia, who is said to head al-Qaeda's international operations, was among five people killed in a blast at a house where they were hiding in North Waziristan on Thursday. President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan confirmed Rabia's death yesterday.

    Quoting unnamed officials, NBC said Rabia was killed by a missile launched from an unmanned Predator drone controlled by the US Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA would not comment. Tribal witnesses in Pakistan said a "hail of missiles" struck the mud house in the village of Haisori. Other witnesses told NBC that missile remnants bearing US markings remain in the area. They also said they had heard six explosions, but it is uncertain how many of these were the result of missile attacks and how many may have been explosives detonating inside the house.

    Rabia, in his 30s, took over al-Qaeda's number three spot, behind Osama bin Laden and his Egyptian deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, after the capture of Abu Faraj Farj al-Liby in Pakistan in May, said US and Pakistani security officials.

    "Rabia's international portfolio included planning attacks against the United States," said a US official, adding that his death would be a serious blow for al-Qaeda. Rabia was involved in two attempts on President Musharraf's life two years ago and security forces had been hunting him for some time.

    Somehow the latest has it he was in a building with bomb making materials which detonated from unknown causes.
    Either way,file it under "thinning the herd".Either a Predator bagged him or an inept bomb builder got the shakes while attaching a pressure sensitive detonator.
    BTW,whatever happened to restrictions on hunting from aircraft?Or is there a exemption for varmints?

    Killing this guy is like throwing a rock in a pond. Glad he is dead though.
