The United States places a bounty of $5 million for information regarding a top Taliban chief.

The bounty placed on Thursday is meant to aid in finding Mullah Fazlullah, who is the leader of the Pakistani arm of the Taliban.

Fazlullah is known for training suicide bombers, and was the target of a U.S. drone strike that killed over 20 militants on Wednesday. However, the operation failed to kill him.

Fazlullah and his Taliban militants are part of ongoing frustration from the U.S. and Kabul toward Pakistan’s efforts to combat insurgents.

The U.S. has been critical of Pakistan’s security efforts.

This comes while a Pakistani delegation meets with officials in Washington to increase cooperation.
