The whereabouts of Baitullah Mehsud when this image was taken is unknown
This month the US state department has put up a $5m (£3.4m) bounty for information leading to the capture of one of the most wanted men in Pakistan.
Baitullah Mehsud heads the Pakistani Taleban and is believed to have been behind the murder of the Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto and the Marriott hotel bombing in Islamabad last year.
He has openly claimed responsibility for the attack on a police academy in Lahore that killed 8 cadets last month.
But is anyone likely to be tempted by this latest offer in what America calls its Rewards for Justice programme?
"Overall the Rewards for Justice programme has been very minimal," says Mike Scheuer, a former CIA intelligence officer who spent years trying to track down Osama Bin Laden.
