US Drone strike kills Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri


The US claims it has a legal basis for the operation since Al-Zawahiri had a continuing leadership role in Al Qaeda.

Administration officials said Monday that the Taliban was not told of the strike in advance.  Al-Zawahiri’s presence in Afghanistan was a violation of the Doha Agreement signed by the U.S. and the Taliban in 2020.
