Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri has been killed in a U-S drone strike in Kabul after being tracked for months by U-S intelligence.

U-S President Joe Biden said in a Monday evening address from the White House that American intelligence officials tracked al-Zawahri to a home in downtown Kabul where he was hiding out with his family.

Officials say they built a scale model of the house, knew al-Zawahri was partial to sitting on the home’s balcony and became familiar with his movements by constructing what they called “a pattern of life.”
