QUETTA, Pakistan—The family of a driver who was killed alongside Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour in a US drone strike in Pakistan has filed a case against US officials, seeking to press murder charges, police said on Sunday. Mansour had entered Pakistan from Iran using a false name and fake Pakistani identity documents on May 21, when his car was targeted by a US drone. The driver, who was also killed, was later identified as Mohammed Azam. The police filed a case on behalf of Azam’s family, police official Abdul Wakil Mengal said. It was not immediately clear what legal avenues the family can realistically pursue.
