New Delhi: Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaida, the world's largest terror group, is still alive and may be hiding in the Pakistani border area. A recent UN report has expressed apprehension that an important part of the people belonging to the terror group al-Qaida are living in the Afghanistan and Pakistan border areas, including al-Qaida's Ayman al-Zawahiri, who may be alive, but is still in a very weak condition.
A report released on Friday said a large number of al-Qaida fighters and other taliban-related foreign extremist elements are living in different parts of Afghanistan. The 12th Report of the United Nations Analytical Support and the Member States of the Sanctions Monitoring Team have reported that an important part of the al-Qaida leadership is located in the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, where they are all linked to and working closely with al-Qaida operating in the Indian subcontinent.
Al Qaeda Chief Ayman al-Zawahiri is said to be somewhere in the border area of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It may be recalled that previous reports of his death due to ill health were not confirmed, stating that al-Zawahiri was dead in Afghanistan. However, the alleged death of the al-Qaida gangster was never confirmed.
