US President Biden speaking – confirms weekend strike killed al-Qaeda leader

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.
