The U.S. government has confirmed the killing of al Qaeda operational commander Ilyas Kashmiri, the prime minister of Pakistan said Monday.

“The U.S. has confirmed that Ilyas Kashmiri was killed on Friday,” said Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani at a Monday press conference in Quetta, the capital of the country’s southwestern province of Balochistan.

Gilani did not explain how he knew the United States had confirmed the death of the man described by counterterrorism officials as al Qaeda’s “military brain.”
