The mastermind behind the bombing of the Danish embassy in Pakistan last summer has been killed in an American missile attack, reports the BBC.

A Pakistan government official told the British news-station that Kenyans Usama al-Kini and Sheikh Ahmed Salim Swedan were killed last week on the Afghan-Pakistani border.

Kini, described as al-Qaeda's chief in Pakistan, was thought to be responsible for last year’s deadly attack on the Mariott Hotel in Islamabad and the official said the Kenyan was certainly responsible for the Danish embassy bombing.

Six died and more than 30 were injured in June when a suicide bomber drove a car bomb into the wall of the Danish compound in Islamabad. No Danes died in the attack that was condemned around the world.

Both men have been on the FBI’s most-wanted list since the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Africa
