Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri may have died in Afghanistan, report claims

Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has passed away from natural causes, Pakistani media alleged today, following steadfast rumours of the terrorist leader’s passing.

Security sources in Pakistan and Afghanistan reported to Arab News that Zawahiri was dead, probably succumbing to asthma following ‘breathing issues’.

One of the sources who spoke to Arab News was an al-Qaeda translator said to preserve close bonds with the group, who said Zawahiri had died in Afghanistan.

‘He died of asthma because he had no formal treatment,’ the translator told the outlet’s Pakistani edition.
