US killed Al-Qaeda Leader

The US has killed the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in a drone strike in Afghanistan

He was killed in a counter-terrorism operation carried out by the CIA in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Sunday.

Mr Biden said Zawahiri had "carved a trail of murder and violence against American citizens".

Zawahiri, who just turned 71 years old, had remained a visible international symbol of Osama Bin Laden's group

At one point, he acted as bin Laden's personal physician.

Zawahiri took over al-Qaeda after the death of Bin Laden in 2011.

Other family members were present, but they were unharmed and only Zawahiri was killed in the attack, officials told.
