Who was Al Zawahiri?
Al Zawahiri was born in Egypt’s Giza. He worked as an eye surgeon. Rabia al-Zawahiri, Zawahiri’s grandfather, was an imam at Al-Azhar University in Cairo. Abdel Rahman Azam, Zawahiri’s great-grandfather, served as the Arab League’s first secretary. Zawahiri, who was raised in a wealthy family, first met Osama bin Laden in Saudi Arabia. Zawahiri’s name was included among the top terrorists in the world following the murder of bin Laden. He had a $25 million reward on his head.
Taliban denies comment
Three Taliban government spokespeople in Kabul declined to comment on Zawahiri’s passing. An attack on Kabul on Sunday has already been announced by a Taliban spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid. He strongly condemned it, calling it a violation of international principles.
According to a Home Ministry spokesperson, a home was struck by the rocket in Sherpur, a posh neighbourhood in the capital that is also home to numerous embassies. He said that because the home was empty, nobody died.
