imageISLAMABAD: The leader of Taliban-linked Haqqani network, Nasiruddin Haqqani, has been shot dead in Islamabad, militant sources told Reuters on Monday.

"Nasiruddin Haqqani was killed in Islamabad while travelling in a car with a few other unidentified people," one Taliban source said, adding that the attack took place on Sunday.

"His body has been moved to North Waziristan."

In June 2010, the United States Treasury sanctioned Nasiruddin and two other Afghans as "specifically designated global terrorists" for their work as senior leaders and financiers for the Taliban and the affiliated Haqqani network.

Police and government officials were not immediately available for comment.

The deceased Nasiruddin Haqqani was the elder brother of Sirajuddin Haqqani, the guerrilla commander who heads the Haqqani network.

Taliban sources confirmed that Haqqani's body had been moved to North Waziristan.
