Taliban Say They Have Not Found Body Of Al Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri

Al-Zawahiri had succeeded Osama Bin Laden as the leader of Al Qaeda.


The Taliban have not found the body of Ayman al-Zawahiri and are continuing investigations, group spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Thursday, after the United States said they killed the al Qaeda leader in an airstrike in Kabul last month.

The United States killed Zawahiri with a missile fired from a drone while he stood on a balcony at his hideout in July, US officials said, in the biggest blow to al Qaeda since US Navy SEALS shot dead Osama bin Laden more than a decade ago.
