Mullah Fazlullah has been named as the new Taliban leader in Pakistan, after the death of Hakimullah Mehsud in a drone attack.

He is known as a hardline commander, whose men shot the schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai.

The BBC's Haroon Rashid said that his appointment suggested the Pakistani Taliban "wanted to send out a message to the world".
