Al-Qaeda chief al-Zawahiri still alive, hiding in Pakistan: UN

New York: Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of the world’s largest terrorist organization Al-Qaeda, is still alive and probably hiding in the border areas of Pakistan. 

The United Nations has expressed its apprehension about this. According to a recent UN report, a significant proportion of people linked to the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda are living in the border regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan, including Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, who is probably alive but he is still in a very weak condition.

The UN report, which was released on Friday, said that a large number of al-Qaeda fighters and other foreign extremist elements linked to the Taliban are living in different parts of Afghanistan. The Twelfth Report of the UN’s Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Group member states states that a significant portion of the al-Qaeda leadership is based in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan, where they are all linked to al-Qaeda operating in the Indian subcontinent. 

Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri is said to be somewhere in the border regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. His death due to ill health was not confirmed by previous reports which said that al-Zawahiri died in Afghanistan.

Zawahiri had helped Osama bin-Laden establish the al-Qaeda in 1988 and led the organization’s activities in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Zawahiri later became the head of al-Qaeda after bin Laden’s death.

Zawahiri is on US most wanted list

Zawahiri is on America’s most wanted list of terrorists. The US government has accused him of murdering its citizens, including conspiracy to murder US citizens outside the United States. The US government had placed a $25 million bounty on Ayman al-Zawahiri.
