Guy who tried to kill Malala is Taliban's new boss

  • The former leader of Pakistani Taliban was killed in a drone strike so it has now picked a new one: the same man who targeted education activist Malala Yousafzai last year. 

    A spokesman for Taliban said Mullah Fazlullah is the "new ameer" and mentioned that he's against negotiations so there won't be any peace talks with the government. 

    The new leader's nickname is "Mullah Radio," given his passionate Islamic radio broadcasts on his underground radio station. He particularly fights against the education of girls and his appointment was a unanimous decision by council members.
