Senior British officials believe that the senior members of al Qaeda might be moving towards North Africa after being weakened in Pakistan and a “last push” in 2012 may definitely destroy the remaining al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan, said a report byThe Guardian on Monday.

The report quoted one official as saying that the “intense campaign” of unmanned drone strikes has successfully killed many al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and “only a handful of key players” are left alive.
