>> welcome to the news hour. from al jazeera news center in doha in london. the top stories. pakistan interior minister accuse the u.s. of sabotaging a peace process after killing a taliban leader in a drone attack. also this hour forced to be a child bride at the age of 11:00.
2:01 pm
now she's working to stop child brides in yemen. >> we'll have all the sports including the latest from the match with liverpool and the english premier league, and we'll tell i couldn't ne you whe fans were singing. all coming up in the program. >> pakistan has criticized the united states for the drone strike that has killed taliban leader hakimu will, lah mehsud. we have reports. >> reporter: this is the pakistani taliban's new leader. khan said is in his mid 0s. he was appointed by a taliban
2:02 pm
commanders securing 43 out of 60 votes. although some factions of the taliban organization is still pushing for other candidates to take the top job. still said is well-known in taliban circles. he's thought to plan an attack on a jail in northwest pakistan last year that freed 400 prisoners. he was a close leader with hakimullah mehsud. and pakistan criticizes the drone strike and many pakistanis are also angry at what the c.i.a. did. >> the americans have absolutely no right to cause this type of
2:03 pm
destruction in our country through these attacks. i believe that this was totally criminal. >> the person killed in the american attack was a muslim. he was a brother. this should not have happened. in fact, there should be no drone attacks in the first place. >> it makes the process of dialogue difficult when hakimullah mehsud is dead. peace attacks can only happen with no drone strikes. >> during mehsud's time as leader of the taliban he was able to carry out attacks against the state that claimed thousands of lines. there are still a few details about the pakistani taliban's new leader but some suggest that khan said is the contender for the top job.
2:04 pm
the peace process started by the government could possibly still go through. but with the pakistani taliban vowing to avenge the death of hakimullah mehsud, there won't be any talks. >> we're joined by richard vice, director at the center for political and military analysis at the hudson institute. thank you very much for being on al jazeera once again. first of all, what do you make of the reaction by the pakistan government? is this mostly more domestic consumption? >> i to think that it's more the latter. we've been through this before in the past ten years or so, the pakistani government has denounced the drone attacks. it's a little bit like king lear
2:05 pm
and "macbeth" wh," the character who says i love the deed but hate the doer. as you point out the military will be happy to see him go, and of course the americans will, too. for those who have seen the film zero dark 30 a.m. there is a defector where they have a defector who women to meet with agentcame to meet withamericansf up. >> they intend to review the entire perspective of the pakistan relationship. do you see this incident. the death of hakimullah mehsud
2:06 pm
having an impact, a big one, could we see this being disrupted again, do you think? >> no, i think that we won't. as you point out we had a very successful visit of the pakistani prime minister last week. the drone strikes were mentioned but it went beyond that, reviving economic partnership, the cut off was an unusual step taken because n.a.t.o. accidently, as we say flippantly kill dozens of pakistani soldiers in this case a taliban leader. in the long run the relationship could be improved. there are those experts of the pakistani taliban who believe mama sad's removal could cause the taliban to split.
2:07 pm
there is a going to be a split. >> they said that this would have an impact on the peace process in pakistan. what about the impact on the peace process in afghanistan trying to engage the taliban in afghanistan as the u.s. prepares to withdraw in 2014. do you see it having an impact at all on that? >> that's a good question. just to point out the pakistani peace process had really not gotten anywhere. this may delay it. but with respect to the afghan peace process there are problems impeding that, recognition, security, suspicions about u.s. motives, and soen, i think that i think what is going to happen
2:08 pm
is a factor and will need support for any peace process or peace agreement, but i don't think this strike will have a big difference. as we had the story of al jazeera last week there was meetings in the afghan intelligence, and afghan intelligence thought they were going to use the afghan taliban against the pakistan, and i think this may help to dampen those pressures. >> thank you for joining us. thanks for your time. energieyou can go to our in-deph section on you'll find new information, graphic about the pakistani taliban, and it's leadership. that's on in other world news two
