NHS doctor who fled UK to become senior Taliban commander is linked to school massacre of 132 children

An NHS doctor who fled the country to become a senior Taliban leader has been killed during an operation involving Pakistan security forces, it was claimed last night.

Dr Mirza Tariq Ali, 39, who worked in hospitals in London and Cambridge, was involved in extremist groups in the UK when he was charged with a violent disorder at protest in London.

But before his court appearance, he skipped bail to fight for the Taliban in Pakistan where he fronted extremist propaganda including a chilling recruitment video.

Last year, his terror group was linked to the Pakistan Taliban massacre of 132 children in Peshawar.
