Islamabad, June 15 - The mastermind behind the Karachi airport terror attacks was killed Sunday during air strikes carried out by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in North Waziristan, a media report said.

Military sources told Dawn online that Abu Abdur Rehman Almani was a key commander of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), the militant group which along with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility of the attack on Karachi's Jinnah International Airport last Sunday night that killed 30 people, including 10 militants.

According to reports, some East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) terrorists were also killed during the air strikes.

The East Turkestan Islamic Movement is a separatist militant outfit blamed for numerous terror attacks in China's restive western region of Xinjiang.
