Following this from earlier:
- says a US counterterrorism operation in Afghanistan over the weekend killed al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri
- “Justice has been served and this terrorist leader is no more”
- Biden says he gave final approval to kill al-Zawahiri a week ago
Zawahri was al-Qaeda’s No. 2 on 9/11. US American officials considered him a central plotter of the attacks.
The Taliban were harboring Zawahri in a safe house in Kabul, in violation of the Doha agreement.
