A senior al-Qaeda militant, accused of planning to bomb trains in New York and London, has been killed in Pakistan.

Adnan el Shuk-ri-jumah was killed in a raid in north-western Pakistan, near the Afghan border.

The FBI describes him as al-Qaeda's global operations chief, a post once held by the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Shuk-ri-jumah was born in Saudi Arabia and lived for several years in the US.
