MADRID, 2 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The leader of the terrorist organization Al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri, has died in a drone attack in Afghanistan, as reported by several US media citing official sources.
Al Zawahiri's death has not yet been officially confirmed, but US President Joe Biden has announced a press conference for 7:30 p.m. (1:30 p.m., Spanish peninsular time).
Biden's appearance is to report "a successful anti-terrorist operation" against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, according to the White House.
"This weekend the United States has carried out an anti-terrorist operation in Afghanistan against a major Al Qaeda target. The operation has been successful and there are no civilian casualties," said a senior government official quoted by CNN.
