DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban chose the man who planned the attack on teenage activist Malala Yousafzai as the group’s new leader today, less than a week after the U.S. killed its former chief in a drone strike, a militant commander and intelligence official said.

The new leader, Fazlullah, has served as the Pakistani Taliban’s leader in the northwest Swat Valley but is believed to be hiding in neighboring Afghanistan. Fazlullah and his group carried out the attack on teenage activist Malala, who was shot in October 2012 on the way home. She was attacked after speaking out against the Taliban over its interpretation of Islam, which limits girls’ access to education.
