The Taliban in Pakistan is vowing revenge, after its leader was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.

A spokesman for the group also announced that Maulana Fazlullah will now lead the group.

While Pakistan publicly condemns U.S. drone strikes the Taliban suspects the government has all the information it needs about the attacks. The strike came on the eve of peace talks between the Taliban and the government. Those talks have been called off

The U.S. use of armed drones to attack suspected militants in Pakistan has long been controversial.

U.S. officials have argued that any drone strikes are very carefully targeted and that civilian casualties have been kept to a bare minimum.

The Pakistani Taliban are fighting to topple the government and impose Islamist rule in the nuclear-armed nation.
