US drone attacks routinely target Taliban and Al-Qaeda commanders in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal belt

Now family announces death

But family complaining and charged the British government

Where reported newspaper "Daily Mail" Monday that the family of the British man Rashid Rauf, (27 years) was a prominent member of al-Qaeda, is planning to sue the British government
And charges of helping the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to kill him in Pakistan.

It seems there is an earlier incident can be used to sue the British government

The Rashid family encouraged to sue the British government in the wake of the lawyers representing young British Pakistanis move a lawsuit against the British Foreign Office

And to detect whether the intelligence provided to the United States for use in a raid last year drone subsidiary of state Waziristan and led to the death of his father along with dozens of others.

We note here that Rashid was included on the list of high-value targets to the (CIA) because of his alleged role as a key planner of al Qaeda attacks against the West,

As British intelligence services believe he was the mastermind behind the London bombings in 2005,

The plot to blow up airliners flying to the United States after taking off from Heathrow Airport near London using liquid bombs in 2006.

But is there doubts about the identity of the Muslims living in European countries?

Is there a risk of some of them extremists?

There are news reports infiltrated hundreds of "radical elements in Europe" to the tribal belt located on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistan border
In addition to receiving training in preparation to carry out attacks in European countries by order of the al-Qaeda

According to the U.S. newspapers, are usually these elements start to go to Turkey, which allow the entry of tourists from Europe without a visa in advance,

Then sneak items to Iran, which turn a blind eye to them because of the anti-Western stance
