FILE - This undated handout file photo provided by the FBI, shows Adnan Shukrijumah. Foreign Islamic militants have been able to secure Pakistani national identity cards in exchange for bribes as low as $100, giving them vastly greater freedom to operate, according to a report by Pakistan’s top intelligence agency obtained by The Associated Press. Among the most notorious beneficiaries of this system was Shukrijumah, a Saudi-born U.S. citizen and a top al-Qaida commander. Shukrijumah was killed in a Pakistani army raid in a tribal region along the Afghan border in December 2014. He was found in possession of a Pakistani national identity card under the name of Shahzaib Khan, according to a recent report by the Inter-Services Intelligence. (FBI, File via AP)

Khan said he had set up a permanent committee of officers to work on ending the practice, adding, “We have prioritized it.”
