ISLAMABAD, Pakistan —The Pakistani Taliban’s second-in-command was killed in a suspected U.S. drone strike early Wednesday in the tribal North Waziristan region, two Pakistani intelligence officials and a local Pakistani Taliban commander in the region said.

An official spokesman for the insurgent group, however, said he had no confirmation of the leader’s death. “I have no such information,” Ehsanullah Ehsan said in a phone interview from an undisclosed location in the tribal region. The officials in North Waziristan, who did not want their names used, said at least four people were killed in the drone strike, including Wali ur-Rehman, a top deputy to Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud.
