 Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was targeted and "likely killed" Saturday in a US drone strike in a remote area of Pakistan along the Afghan border, a US official said.

The airstrike, which was authorized by President Barack Obama, also killed a second adult male combatant as the two traveled in a vehicle southwest of the town of Ahmad Wal, but no civilians were killed. 

"Mansour was the target and was likely killed," the official said, speaking under the condition of anonymity.
