Al-Qaeda’s Second-in-Command Killed by Afghan Security Forces

Afghan security forces have killed al-Qaeda’s second-in-command Abu Muhsin al-Masri, according to Afghanistan’s intelligence service.

Al-Masri was an Egyptian national on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Most Wanted Terrorists list.

He was killed during a special operation in the central Ghazni province of Afghanistan.

Al-Masri, who also goes by the name Husam Abd-al-Ra’uf, has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organisation, and conspiracy to kill US nationals.

The US issued a warrant for his arrest in December 2018. Source
