Pakistan's Interior Minister: Killing of Hakimullah Mehsud the "Death of All Peace Efforts"

Pakistan's interior minister has said the death of Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud has destroyed the country's nascent peace process.

"This is not just the killing of one person, it's the death of all peace efforts," Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said.

Pakistan's security forces have been put on high alert following the US drone strike on Friday.

It came a day before a government delegation had been due to fly to North Waziristan to meet Mehsud.
