DERA ISMAIL KHAN/WANA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistani Taliban fighters secretly buried their leader on Saturday after he was killed by a U.S. drone aircraft and quickly moved to replace him while vowing a wave of revenge suicide bombings.
The Pakistani government denounced the killing of Hakimullah Mehsud as a U.S. bid to derail planned peace talks and summoned the U.S. ambassador to protest. Some lawmakers demanded the blocking of U.S. supply lines into Afghanistan in retaliation.
"The murder of Hakimullah is the murder of all efforts at peace," said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar. "Americans said they support our efforts at peace. Is this support?"
Mehsud, who had a $5 million U.S. bounty on his head, and three others were killed on Friday in the militant stronghold of Miranshah in northwest Pakistan.
Mehsud's vehicle was hit after he attended a meeting of Taliban leaders, a Pakistani Taliban fighter said, adding that Mehsud's body was "damaged but recognizable". His bodyguard and driver were also killed.
He was secretly buried under cover of darkness in the early hours by a few companions amid fears that his funeral might be attacked by U.S. drones, militants and security sources said.
"Every drop of Hakimullah's blood will turn into a suicide bomber," said Azam Tariq, a Pakistani Taliban spokesman.
"America and their friends shouldn't be happy because we will take revenge for our martyr's blood."
Mehsud took over as leader of the al Qaeda-linked Pakistani Taliban in 2009. The group's two previous leaders were killed in attacks by U.S. missile-firing drones.

MOAB opportunities like those don't come along often.
The problem is that for every one you kill, ten pop up to take their place. Unless the West is willing to adopt the brutal tactics of Caesar or Genghis Khan when invading a country and confronted with a hostile country, its policies will remain ineffectual. They will ultimately be disastrous if they continue to allow fervent political Islamists unhindered and subsidized access to the West.
Then we kill those ten and then ten more and ten more.
These bastards do NOTHING in the dark, they LOVE to show the world how evil America is.
Something's wrong with the whole story ... maybe even the claim of a death.
No need to go that far back in history...just do like Patton did in the Phillipines.
We used to have stones.
The Obama administration has swept about 200lbs of Islamic extremism under the rug.
What of us when it all comes spilling out? Can you say Mumbai, Nairobi, London right here at home?
I guess the plus side is that now we won’t have to travel so far to fight our wars of social engineering...
wouldn’t be the first time he died “” .
funny as how I don’t think Islam believes in resurrection. soo..
anything to distract from Benghazi. 8-]
Nuke the grave site from outer space....
Just to be sure.
——Then we kill those ten and then ten more and ten more.-——
....except we don’t kill ten and then ten more...
Our Obama new ROE prevent our military from even protecting themselves let only kill the enemy. ..
looks like Obama nuked peace talks.. like any were likely to succeed.. they should have waited a day..
Hakimullah Mehsud drone strike: ‘Death of peace efforts’
Pakistan’s interior minister has said the death of Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud has destroyed the country’s nascent peace process.
“This is not just the killing of one person, it’s the death of all peace efforts,” Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said.
Pakistan has summoned the US ambassador to protest over Friday’s drone strike that killed Mehsud.
It came a day before a Pakistani delegation had been due to fly to North Waziristan to meet Mehsud.
