Two white British Al Qaeda members have been killed in a suspected US drone attack in northwest Pakistan, the BBC reported on Thursday.

The Muslim converts, aged 48 and 25 were killed in a missile attack near Datta Khel town in North Waziristan five days ago, officials said.

The men were reportedly in a vehicle with two other militants at the time.

According to the Guardian, the two Britons were using the pseudonyms Abu Bakr and Mansoor Ahmed.

In September, another British terror suspect Abdul Jabbar was killed in a drone attack in northwest Pakistan.

Jabbar was being groomed to head an Al Qaeda splinter group to launch Mumbai-style commando attacks against targets in Britain, France and Germany.
